Dedham School Donates Pajamas to Domestic Violence Shelter

Updated 2 years ago

Students at the Dedham School are bringing Christmas to children they don’t even know.One by one students dropped off piles and piles of pajamas as they paraded throughout the gynasium during a Christmas assembly.The pajamas will be taken to Spruce Run, a domestic violence shelter.This year, they collected 135 pajamas.Amanda Cost, the Program Director for Spruce Run says the donation opens up the conversation on a sensitive subject in hopes of preventing it from happening in the future.”There are really very age appropriate ways to talk to kids about domestic violence and I think this school is starting that by looking at character and talking about the choices we make and how we treat each other,” she said.Last year, the school donated 1-hundred fourteen pajamas. They hope to make the pajama collection an annual tradition.
