As chilly weather returns to the Berkshires, the PJ Library Pajama Drive conducted by the Jewish Federation of the Berkshires also returns to help the many children in our community who may lack the comfort of warm sleepwear.

Everyone Deserves to have a warm comforting feeling when you are nice and snug in your PJs' during these cold winter months here in the Berkshires.

With the Pandemic underway more families need the extra help in keeping their children warm and give them a sense of calm, in these tumultuous times.

Last year’s effort collected more than 150 pairs of pajamas from individuals, groups, and local businesses. We want to build on that success.

This year, the Jewish Federation of the Berkshires have teamed up with Carr Hardware to offer drop-off of brand-new pajamas (sizes newborn to teen) at these convenient locations across Berkshire County:

· Carr Hardware, 256 Main Street in Great Barrington

· Carr Hardware, 489 Pittsfield Road in Lenox

· Jewish Federation of the Berkshires, 196 South Street in Pittsfield

· Carr Hardware, 179 State Road in North Adams

The Pajama Drive runs from November 10 through December 16.

Monetary donations towards the purchase of pajamas are also welcome. Questions? Contact Susan Frisch Lehrer (413) 442-4360, ext. 14 or email:

Donations will be received by the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families in Pittsfield and will be distributed to local families during the holiday season.
