Kids in Estevan will be a little warmer this Christmas thanks to the efforts of the local Kinette Club. They were set up at last night's Bruins game collecting pajamas in support of the angel Tree.
"Collecting pajamas went amazing last night," shared Chelsey Istace, a member of the Kinettes. "We brought 50 pairs with us to the game and we sold all 50 pairs. We actually had another $500 in cash donations that was brought in. As well as people brought their own pajamas to drop off and donate too. So it was really really good last night."
She added that they will be doing another count to see where they are at.
"Our last count was 105 and we needed about 350 pairs at that time and I think the number has gone up to 365 pairs. By the end of today, we'll have more of a total and we'll update it on our Facebook page - All Kids Deserves PJ's For Christmas 2017."
The Kinettes will conitue their collecting efforts up until December 17th.
"After that we need to hand them over to the Estevan Angel Tree ans they are going to get ready for the store to be open."
The Kinettes will also use the cash donations to go and buy more pajamas as well.
"It's usually the bigger sizes that we end up having to go out and shop for, usually about 10 and older. A lot of people like to buy the cute little pajamas but a lot of the older kids are the ones that are left out. So those are the sizes that we are most needing."
Donations can be given to any Kinette member, or dropped off at Excessive Sports or given to the Angel Tree directly.
