Legislator Jacobs with children who participated in the MATSS Project

Shown with Legislator Jacobs and Marni Abel are all of the children and M.A.T.S.S. staff.

Nassau County Legislator Judy Jacobs (D-Woodbury) joined M.A.T.S.S Kids Gym of Syosset in welcoming Marni Abel, of The Pajama Project Program to the school. The Pajama Program is a program which collects new pajamas for children in need. The School contributed hundreds of pajamas. Ms. Abel explained that many of the children and young adults who receive the pajamas are receiving new pajamas for the first time in their lives. Jacobs said, "the children from M.A.T.S.S. were all in pajamas for the event. This projects teaches them at a very young age the wonders of giving rather than receiving."
