The Surrey Christmas Pyjama Drive

Started by Reese Shelly, a grade 2 student, at Rosemary Heights Elementary School, the Christmas Pyjama drive has been created to help other children, who are less fortunate. Reese’s goal is to get 1,000 pyjama’s for kids who do not have the privilege of sleeping in a cozy pair of pyjamas.

For most of us, a nice pair of pyjamas is always a cozy feeling. Unfortunately, not everyone gets to experience that. However, with the assistance of his fellow students, his teacher, and his mother, Reese is looking to change that, this Christmas. Let’s find out how we can help!

Purchase new PJs (newborn to 16 yrs) and then you can drop them off at:

  • Browns Socialhouse Restaurants (Sunday, Dec.4th, receive 50% off your food when you bring in PJ’s)
  • Rosemary Heights Elementary
  • Star of the Sea Elementary

    We did it!! We successfully delivered 1,422 pairs of new Pyjamas to the Surrey and Lowermainland Christmas Bureaus!!! Reese & his pyjama posse are so proud and can’t wait until next year. We will be having another board meeting with Reese & the pyjama ambassadors at Tim Hortons over hot chocolate to discuss strategies & set higher goals for next year. Don’t underestimate the power of 7 yr olds!
