Berlin, Md. - The Atlantic General Hospital Intensive Care Unit staff collected 200 pajamas
and 220 books to donate to the area’s local chapter of Pajama Program in March.
The Pajama Program aims to offer at-risk children a pair of pajamas and
a book to read before bedtime, in hopes of ensuring every child gets the
good night’s sleep they need. The ICU at Atlantic General Hospital
worked together to collect 200 pajamas and 220 books to donate to the
Pajama Program’s local partner, Worcester Youth and Family Services.
The program is a national organization that works with local partners
to distribute the items to children in need.
“Your love and support mean so much to the children we serve - especially
at bedtime when they are at their most vulnerable. Our children feel heartbroken
when they are separated from their families and fearful when they are
living in uncertain situations.” Wrote Jamie Dyce, executive director
of Pajama Program.
