(SYOSSET, N.Y.) - Nassau County Legislator Arnold W. Drucker (D - Plainview) visited M.A.T.S.S. Kids Gym in Syosset for their annual Pajama Day festivities on Friday, March 3.
During the event, which also serves as a book and pajama drive, youngsters wore their favorite pajamas and brought an extra pair to donate. Proceeds of the drive are donated to the Long Island Pajama Program, which in 2022 distributed 81,950 sets of new pajamas and storybooks to children facing adversity and reached thousands of children and families through their community programs.
“Thanks to the generous support of our local community, this program continues to brighten the lives of countless families and youngsters through simple acts of kindness and caring,” Legislator Drucker said. “I am grateful that M.A.T.S.S. Kids Gym is continuing this wonderful tradition – one that empowers the Long Island Pajama Program to fulfill its mission of supporting and nurturing our next generation.”
