Sunshine Coast Council is proud to support the Pyjama Foundation by nominating libraries across the Coast as collection points for the 2012 Pyjama Drive.
Members of the community can donate pyjamas until the end of July at any branch library or mobile library across the Sunshine Coast.
The donations will be provided to children who enter foster care with little or no belongings. Donations need to be new pyjamas for girls and boys, in summer and winter styles and from sizes 00000 to adult.
The Pyjama Foundation also recruits, screens, trains and supports Pyjama Angels who volunteer to work with foster care children to help with their literacy and numeracy in a fun and supportive way.
2012 is the National Year of Reading and research shows that any improvement in literacy and numeracy skills will have a positive impact on a person’s life. Sunshine Coast Libraries and the Pyjama Foundation share a common goal of promoting reading, literacy and learning.
For further information call your local library on 1300 LIBRARY or visit council’s library website.
