For the second year in a row, the Golden Valley Federated Women’s Club has kicked off a “pajama party” in October to support Minnesota’s Domestic Violence Awareness project.
The Women's Club is collecting pajamas for the Home Free Shelter, a local organization that supports women and children who are fleeing from domestic abuse. In 2010, the shelter housed 500 women and children from Golden Valley and surrounding areas.
DeDe Scanlon, a member of the GVFWC and the city council, says the club has collected more than 50 pairs of PJ's so far.
"Even one or two pairs makes a big difference," she said. "We're hoping other people think so, too."
Scanlon says the shelter would prefer lighter weight pajamas from infant size to 5T for both boys and girls and says any size pajamas for women would be greatly appreciated.
To help the GVFWC with this effort, please drop off new pajamas at the collection boxes in the and the throughout October.
