There’s just something about a new pair of jammies that says ‘cozy and safe’ to kids, and Long Beach restaurants do their part to make sure nightly bedtime rituals like fresh pajamas will provide a reassuring and peaceful good night to in-need children during the holiday season.
Several of Long Beach’s most popular restaurants come together every November to participate in the Holiday Kids Pajama Drive. The goal is to collect 500 pairs of pajamas for distribution to local agencies servicing low income and homeless families.
Guests that visit any of the participating restaurants and donate a pair of new, unwrapped pajamas will receive a complimentary dessert, appetizer or special offer of the restaurant’s choosing. In addition to PJs for children aged infant to age 18, the restaurants will be collecting children’s slippers, robes, security blankets, books and toothbrush/toothpaste sets through November 30th. At the conclusion of the Pajama Drive, collected items will be distributed to Lydia House (Long Beach Rescue Mission) and New Life Beginnings agencies for gift giving to their youngest clientele over the holiday season.
