On November 22, 2015, Kind Village & Pyjama Patrol hosted the first-ever Family Pyjama Party in the Capital supporting the Youville Centre, Bethany Hope Centre and the Kanata Food Cupboard, all working to keep local children warm over the chilly Ottawa winter.
The event was powered entirely by volunteers and local businesses who donated their time, talents, and goods. The event received over 35,000 social media hits and local and national press coverage.
More than 350 community members donated 300+ pairs of kids PJs, 1000+ diapers, mittens, toys, and food to meet the needs of kids in our city.
Our sincerest gratitude to everyone involved in supporting and coordinating the innaugural Kind Village Impact Event. The smiles all around were a testament to the meaningful impact that resulted for our community and everyone involved.
