The International Sleep Products Association Helps Needy Children

The International Sleep Products Association’s March EXPO in New Orleans promises to be a pajama party.  To thank its host city, the International Sleep Products Association (ISPA) and its members are collecting new pajamas and books to donate to the New Orleans Pajama Program.

Ryan Trainer, ISPA president stated, “During EXPO held on March 26-29, 2014, ISPA encourages attendees to contribute new books, pajamas [all sizes infant to 18 years old] or cash to help needy children get a good night’s sleep. Donation bins will be located on-site. All donations and proceeds will benefit the New Orleans Chapter of the Pajama Program.”

The non-profit Pajama Program provides new pajamas and books to children, many of whom are waiting to be adopted. These children live in various situations, including group homes, shelters and temporary housing facilities. Most have never enjoyed the simple comfort of having a mother or father tuck them in at bedtime with warm, clean pajamas and a bedtime story.

Genevieve Piturro, founder, Pajama Program has stated, “At Pajama Program we believe that a loving and comforting bedtime routine makes a huge difference for any child, but for some children this is not always possible, which is why we are committed to providing children in need with new comfy pajamas and a new book of their very own.  We are grateful to ISPA’s support of Pajama Program and its help in helping to make sure that all children have a good night’s sleep.”
