THANK YOU from Pajama Pride, the September 2018 Change Matters group
“As the September recipient of the Change Matters program, Pajama Pride wishes to extend a sincere ‘Thank You’ to the Wedge and Linden Hills Co-op owners, shoppers and staff. Your hard work promoting our group, as well as the generosity of those who chose to ‘round-up’ provided us with $13,042.80! This is equivalent to almost an entire year of fundraising for our small, community-based organization. Your Change Matters donations will provide new pajamas and toiletries for 175 people who enter the Black Dog Hill domestic violence shelter next year. Your generosity will make a direct impact on these families as they seek refuge and begin their new lives. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you!”
