We’re Collecting Children’s Pajamas for Pajama Gramma

Every year at Christmas time, the Clackamas County Democrats help the Pajama Gramma collect new, warm pajamas for children staying in the county’s emergency shelters.

You can take pajamas to the Pajama Gramma (see below), to the Clackamas Dems office during office hours, to our next Central Committee meeting (in January), or call Marilyn Donovan (503 327-9738) or Larry Skidmore (503 327-9739) to pick them up.

Here is a letter from the Pajama Gramma.


I’m gathering New Pajamas sized Toddler to Tweens to be donated to the “Clackamas Women’s Services.” They provide emergency shelters to women and children escaping family violence. We all know (no matter how old we are) how good it feels to have a new warm pair of jammies. Please help this gramma to allow these children to have that “fuzzy feeling.”

This is not a Christmas project: The need is year round, but I think about keeping youngsters warm this time of year.

Pajamas may be delivered to my home at:
325 E. Arlington St., Gladstone
Or call 503-655-1499 for pickup.
Feel free to contact me with any questions.
