Be Christmas with the Pajama Project

Every night in America, too many children go to sleep, uncertain of what tomorrow will bring, compromising their health, school performance, and emotional well-being. Over the course of the Christmas Season, the goal of the Pajama Project is to provide pajamas and bedtime books to children of all ages.  Together, United Methodist Communities in SouthWestern New Hampshire (Asbury Church and West Rindge UMC) have partnered with Head Start Programs in Keene and Jaffery, New Hampshire.

We invite you to be a part of this incredible gift of warmth and love.

The Pajama Project Helps you to Help in three transformative ways;

First, we invite you to make a gift of Pajamas and Books that go directly to these children. 

We welcome your direct donation of new children’s books and brand-new boys and girls’ pajamas ranging in sizes for newborns on up. You can pick out a child directly through our virtual giving tree at:

As your shop, we ask that you affix receipts with your donation, as we are coordinating our efforts with groups who will match a certain portion of your giving.  These gifts can be dropped off at Asbury Church, West Rindge UMC, or Head Start in Keene, NH (Mon-Friday 8:30-4:00pm). To coordinate those drop-offs please contact the church via Facebook (or

Second, we invite you to make a tax-deductible, earmarked gift to the Pajama Project.

Our extended community has elves at your disposal.   If you would like to offer a financial gift earmarked towards this project, your gift is tax-deductible.   Our elves will direct 100% of your gift to this project, purchasing additional pajamas and books through local merchants. There are two ways to give directly to this mission; first, you can give online via this site ( If you give online choose the drop-down “Pajama Project.” You can also mail a gift to PJ Project c/o Asbury UMC, 532 Route 63 – PO Box 148, Chesterfield, New Hampshire 03443-148.

Finally, we invite you to spread the news of this project.

The more people who learn of this annual project, the more we can help. Each year this project grows right alongside the need. Even during Covid, our communities were able to make a difference directly to those who need our help the most. Tell your friends, share the posts, and spread the word at work, at play, and over social media. It is up to you to get the word out!

About Head Start

Head Start is a federally funded program that was created as a way to address the fact that poverty was affecting the educational opportunities of kids between the ages of 3 and 5.  Since its inception, Head Start has not only provided economically disadvantaged kids a preschool education, but it’s addressing their emotional, psychological, nutritional, and social needs as of their entire family.
