2017 Hoboken Family Alliance 10th Annual Toy & Pajama Drive

HOBOKEN FAMILY ALLIANCE (HFA) is launching a major toy and pajama drive for local children in need, within the age range of newborn to 17 years in the Hoboken / Hudson County area.

All donations large and small are appreciated. To fulfill HFA mission, they hope to provide a nurturing environment to these children to help them be comforted and feel loved.

Recipients will include children in local organizations: Division of Youth & Family Services (DYFS), In Jesus’ Name Charities and York Street Project.

2 Drives:

1) Pajama and Book Program

By providing pajamas and books, we are helping to create a warm and nurturing bedtime environment for vulnerable children and young adults living under difficult circumstances. We'll provide new pajamas and books to disadvantaged children, many of whom are waiting and hoping to be adopted.

Many of these youngsters have been abused or abandoned and in many cases have never enjoyed the simple comfort of having a loving mother or father tuck them in at bedtime. Through the Pajama program, we hope to contribute to a warmer, more loving environment for these children.

Pajamas must be new and unused for all sizes, infant to age 17. Larger sizes are preferred, but all are appreciated!

2) Toy Drive

HFA hopes this event to bring something special to the children and are asking that all donated gifts be new and unwrxt have received any gifts. The items are given to families who cannot afford to buy presents, so the children can open a gift that is given to them by a loved one, not a charity.

If you’d like to contribute, there are 2 ways to do so:

A) Tax Deductible Monetary Donation to Pajama & Toy Drive

If you wish to make a financial donation, please go to our webpage to donate:
