BOSTON - The Boston Bruins and the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners are teaming up with Cradles to Crayons and DCF Wonderfund, both non-profits that ensure positive living conditions for children, to present the 13th Annual "PJ Drive" to benefit Massachusetts' youth in need. The drive will run from February 1 until March 15.
The PJ Drive provides new, unused pajamas to babies, children, and teens in communities across Massachusetts. Bruins Captain Zdeno Chara will lead this year's PJ Drive for the fifth time. The PJ Drive was started by former Bruin P.J. Axelsson and his wife Siw during the 2007-2008 season. Since then, over 120,000 Massachusetts children have received PJ's through the Bruins PJ drive.
The Boston Bruins will be hosting an in-game PJ collection on Saturday, February 15 at the Boston Bruins vs. Detroit Red Wings game at 1:00 p.m. at TD Garden. Fans who donate PJs or $10 at this game will be entered in a raffle to win Bruins autographed prizes. Please note that all PJs must be new and unused to be donated.
Fans can register their own organization to be a PJ Drive donation site HERE. The top three organizations that collect the most PJs will receive five tickets to one of the following games: Bruins vs. Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday, March 24 at 7:00 p.m., or Bruins vs. Florida Panthers on Saturday, March 28 at 7:00 p.m.
If fans are unable to host their own collections or attend the Bruins game on February 15 but would still like to contribute, PJs can be dropped off to a participating library. Participating libraries can be found HERE.
