Donate PJs & Toys at MOCA!

Bring in a new pair of pajamas or unwrapped toy for FREE museum admission*!

2014 6th Annual "PJs for the Holidays" starts November 10!  

Pajama Jams is an organization providing new pajamas to children in need. Help us kick-off the holidays and this year's "PJ's for the Holidays" Pajama Drive. This year's campaign runs Monday, 11/10/2014 through Wednesday, 12/10/2014.  PJs for the Holidays is an annual program to distribute pajamas to children in need during the holiday season.  Drop off locations are throughout Hampton Roads. We accept sizes 5T - through Adult L.  

Building on our drive in recent years, Pajamas Jams is continuing to grow by leaps and bounds.  We are thrilled to say that through the combined efforts of our sponsors, partners and volunteers, we collected nearly 1200 pairs of pajamas during 2013 (almost double what we collected the year prior) and we hope to double THAT number in 2014. 

Some of our charities from last year are returning, like the Salvation Army's Angel Tree Program, and we are delighted to add the Samaritan House and For Kids as new beneficiaries for this year! 

Pajama Jams will also have a collection table at MOCA's Holiday Sale on Sunday, December 7th. 

Start making 2014 a greater success. Groups and individuals may take the Pajama Pledge



 Every year The Noblemen provide Christmas presents to local children who would otherwise  be receiving very few, if any presents at all for Christmas. This year The Noblemen Toy Drive will reach over 3000 Children in Hampton Roads.
