The Community Coalition of Forest County, in partnership with the Forest County Social Services Department and the Forest County Drug Endangered Children committee are hosting a Holiday Pajama Drive now through December 22nd.
The pajamas will be distributed as part of the Forest County Drug Endangered Children committee’s backpack program utilized by both the Forest County Social Services Departments and the Forest County Sheriff Department as part of their work with drug endangered children. The backpacks contain personal care items, including pajamas, for children that are removed from endangered environments and must leave their belongings behind due to various circumstances.
Drop off sites for the Holiday Pajama drive are as follows: Forest County Courthouse lobby, Crandon Public Library, Laona State Bank – Laona office, Laona Town Hall and the Wabeno Branch of the Laona State Bank.
The Community Coalition asks that the pajamas be brand-new, in children’s sizes 3T through age 12, and manufactured as pajamas in order to ensure they are flame-retardant and safe. For more information please contact Mary Thornton at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 715-478-7797.
