New pajamas and books being collected

The Amherst Senior Center is once again collecting new, unused pajamas (sizes infant to 17 years old) and new children’s books for its pajama program. The collection runs from Sept. 1 through Oct. 31.

All items collected will be delivered to the Buffalo chapter of the pajama program, which will distribute the items through agencies such as Cornerstone Manor, Baker Victory Services, Child and Family Services and the Salvation Army.

The pajama program benefits area children that are living with their families below the poverty level, in desperate need of food, clothing and shelter and others are waiting to be adopted.
