The Educational Counseling Graduate Student Association at Cal State San Bernardino, along with the Children’s Fund, is working to collect 4,000 sets of pajamas for the children, ages six months to 18 years.

The group kicked off the drive in October with an event held in the atrium of the university’s College of Education building.

Donations of new and non-gift wrapped pajamas will be accepted through Friday, Nov. 30, said Aurora Vilchis of the university’s College of Extended Learning.

The association has locations throughout the campus where the pajamas can be dropped off, Vilchis said. You can see the list of locations on campus, as well as in San Bernardino County and the CSUSB Palm Desert Campus at the online drop-off list.

This year the Educational Counseling Graduate Student Association’s theme is “Uniting for Social Justice.” By providing a pair of pajamas, the association hopes to make a difference in the lives of foster children.

Last year the association collected 2,500 pairs of pajamas.
