5th Annual PJ Drive Kicks Off Feb. 1

by Staff Writer / Boston Bruins
BOSTON, MA – Beginning Tuesday, February 1, the Boston Bruins, Cradles to Crayons and AT&T are teaming up to host the Fifth Annual PJ Drive for Massachusetts' children in need. Throughout the month of February, Bruins’ fans, families, schools and corporations are encouraged to donate new, unused pajamas for underprivileged children statewide. Fans can drop off pajamas at 77 AT&T retail store locations throughout New England. See below for the participating AT&T stores.

This year, AT&T is offering fans the chance to text a $5 donation to help support the Bruins PJ Drive.  Fans can text PJ to 27722 and be automatically entered to win a chance to shop for PJ’s with a Boston Bruins player in February.  Texting contest ends February 5, 2012.

On Saturday, February 11, Boston Bruins will be hosting their in-game collection during the Bruins/Predators game at 1 :00 p.m. In addition to helping children in need, fans choosing to participate will receive a raffle ticket for each pair of pajamas donated for the chance to win Boston Bruins team autographed memorabilia.

There are a number of ways to get involved with the 2012 PJ Drive...

School Participation
This year, schools statewide are invited to participate in the collections. All grade levels K-5 are welcome to sign-up. The class that collects the most pajamas wins an in-school visit to their classroom from a Bruins player and the Bruins mascot, Blades. All of the registration information can be found at

Youth Hockey Participation
This year youth hockey teams throughout the state are invited to participate in the collection. The youth hockey team that collects the largest amount of pajamas will win an on-ice youth hockey clinic with the Bruins Youth Hockey Development staff.
