Donahue Students Attend Class In Pajamas

Updated:

Students at John Glenn Elementary didn't have to listen when parents told them to get dressed for school Friday morning. The school in Donahue held a pajama day to support Bethany for Children and Families.

Not only was sleep-wear the new dress code -- students and staff organized a pajama and stuffed animal drive to benefit children in need. It's part of the school's annual holiday giving project to do something good for the community. Organizers say donations of warm clothes are especially important this time of year.

"We have children of all ages that can use the pajamas. It's a time of the year that there's a need -- with the cold weather -- that we'll have a tremendous need for this. So, it's a great opportunity. We're very thankful," said Jenny Hager, Vice President of Marketing and Development, Bethany for Children and Families.

Hundreds of donations were dropped off at the school . Each student made a personalized gift tag to go with their donation. Bethany will distribute the donations to children in the Quad City area.
