United Way hosting annual pajama drive

The United Way of the Mid-Willamette Valley’s ninth Annual Pajama Drive began in early November. The drive is an opportunity to support those in need as the winter season approaches. There are more than 40 physical drop-off, including the Keizertimes office at 142 Chemawa Rd. N. Due to many people still working from home and other restrictions stemming from COVID-19, United Way has an Amazon wish list that people can buy from and contribute virtually.

Last year, United Way of the Mid-Willamette Valley collected over 800 pairs of pajamas that were distributed between eight local non-profits serving children and adults. The 2021 drive will run through November 30, when drop-off boxes will be collected and their contents sorted by size and age.
