2. Scholastic Reading Club matches each pair of pj's with a new book to make bedtime better for kids in need.

3. The pj's are all new and range from newborn to adult sizes.

4. The students collected 43 pairs of pajamas, matched with 43 books, that were donated to Upper Des Moines in Emmetsburg for distribution.

Blue Jean Drive:

Because jeans are one of the top items requested by teens and families experiencing homelessness, the 7th and 8th graders sponsored a blue jean drive. Fifty-seven pair of jeans were donated to Upper Des Moines in Emmetsburg.

Thanks to all the families of Emmetsburg Catholic School who donated for both of these drives.
