OTC's Pajama Drive in support of our non-profit partner Comfort Cases
Disney’s Beauty and the Beast teaches us that small acts of kindness
have the power to change a life. That's why we are partnering with Comfort Cases, a Rockville-based organization with a mission to provide comfort and support to children entering the foster care system. They have done this by providing kids with their own Comfort Case.
A Comfort Case is a small duffel bag or backpack that holds essential items and a few special things. Its purpose is to provide comfort for children as they enter the foster care system. The case provides the essentials for the first few days in a new place as well as some comfort items to help ease a scary transition. They want these children to know that their community cares about them and wants them to have something of their very own.
You can make a difference in the life of a child in need by donating a new pair of pajamas (we especially need larger sizes) to be included in a Comfort Case.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE IN THE PAJAMA DRIVE:
Bring a pair of new pajamas, particularly older children’s sizes which are especially needed and in short supply (although all sizes are appreciated). Please keep in mind to avoid season-specific pajamas (aka Christmas jammies) or those with potentially hurtful messages like “Daddy’s Little Princess.”
WHERE: Pajamas can be dropped off at Olney Theatre Center in the bins located in the lobby of the 1938 Original Theatre next to the Box Office.
WHEN: November 5, 2021 - January 2, 2022. Prior to any performance or during Box Office hours, Wednesday - Sunday, noon - 6:00 pm.
