Pajama Program Community Involvement!!

Name of Organization or Cause *
Pajama Program

MariahMathis* - National American Miss Alabama Jr Pre Teen

Total Time Served* - 6 hours

    The Pajama Program provides new pajamas and new books to children in need, many who are waiting to be adopted. It is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization and is celebrating 10 years in 2011. The North Alabama Chapter donates to organizations such as Harris Home for Children, a foster care institution and child placement agency. This is Mariah's second year hosting the program at the ice rink and it has been a success each year. Each guest received free admission for a pair of pajamas and a free pass for each book to return at another time to the ice rink. The younger girls really enjoy meeting a "real princess". Mariah reads to the kids and also ice skates with them. This helps children in need and also exposes others to figure skating, which is one of Mariah's favorite things to do.
