This year marks the 12th anniversary of PJ Day for the Kids! Each year, students and staff across the state wear their PJs to school and donate $1 or more to support the kids at Connecticut Children’s, who wear their PJs for long periods of time while undergoing treatment. All money raised on PJ Day stays local, directly assisting patients at Connecticut Children’s by funding research at the hospital’s Center for Cancer & Blood Disorders.

On Friday, Dec. 9, 2022, students and staff at all West Hartford Public Schools will once again participate in PJ Day by wearing their PJs to school and making donations.

“PJ Day is near and dear to my heart, and I am so proud to be a part of this generous community,” said Laura Nichols, West Hartford Public Schools PJ Day team coordinator.

As stated on the PJ Day for the Kids website, “As long as children are battling cancer and Connecticut Children’s expert staff are treating them, the Center for Cancer & Blood Disorders needs your support. We can all stand together with kids battling cancer.”  To date, PJ Day has raised over $2 million and the West Hartford Public Schools team has always been one of the event’s top fundraisers. And while we find ourselves in uncertain times, these brave children still need our support. West Hartford Public Schools are committed to doing what they can to help.

To make a donation in support of the WHPS team, scan the QR code with your phone’s camera, or follow this link. Cash and checks (payable to Connecticut Children’s Foundation, Inc. or to your child’s school with PJ Day in the memo line) will also be accepted at all schools on Dec. 9, 2022

“Thank you for your help, support and generosity! Together, we really can make a big difference,” Nichols said.
