tt-olsnows-pjs

Pajamas provide a sense of comfort and safety, especially for children. To provide pajamas to children who are homeless or in financial need, the Student Council of Our Lady of the Snows School, North Floral Park, sponsored a pajama day dress down. Every child donated $1 to participate and funds were used to donate 90 sleepwear sets for children to the Economic Opportunity Commission of Nassau County. The Student Council ran the project under the direction of its moderators, Maria Finn and Liz Flynn. (Photo: Maria Finn)
