(SYOSSET, N.Y.) - Nassau County Legislator Arnold W. Drucker (D - Plainview) joined the Pajama Day festivities at M.A.T.S.S. Kids Gym in Syosset on Friday, Feb. 7 - a fun occasion for participants that doubles as a successful annual book and pajama drive.
The event was held in partnership with the Long Island Pajama Program, which provides books and pajamas to children in need. Attendees were invited to wear their favorite pajamas to the event and asked to bring an extra pair to donate. Legislator Drucker contributed pajamas to the Long Island Pajama Program, which to date has provided nearly 4.2 million pairs of pajamas and more than 2.74 million books to children.
“By supporting the Pajama Program’s ‘Good Night Bill of Rights,’ we are building stronger communities and ensuring our children are loved, cared for, and positioned to thrive,” Legislator Drucker said. “I thank M.A.T.S.S. Kids Gym for their ongoing support of the Long Island Pajama Project and its noble mission to ensure every child has a book to read and comfortable pajamas so that good nights can become good days.”
