There’s just something about a new pair of jammies that says ‘cozy and safe’ to kids, and Long Beach restaurants are doing their part to make sure nightly bedtime rituals like fresh pajamas will provide a reassuring and peaceful good night to in-need children this holiday season.
Twelve of Long Beach’s most popular restaurants are coming together to participate in the first Dine LBC-organized Holiday Kids Pajama Drive to take place the entire month of November, organizers announced today.
Guests that visit any of the participating restaurants and donate a pair of new, unwrapped pajamas valued at $5 or more will receive a complimentary dessert, appetizer or special offer of the restaurant’s choosing. In addition to pajamas for children aged infant to age 18, the restaurants will be collecting childrens slippers, robes, security blankets, books and toothbrush/toothpaste sets through November 30th. At the conclusion of the Pajama Drive, collected items will be distributed to Lydia House (Long Beach Rescue Mission), New Life Beginnings and other non-profit agencies servicing low income and homeless families for gift giving to their youngest clientele over the holiday season. The goal is to collect 500 pairs of pajamas during the one month pajama drive.
Participating restaurants include:
- Berlin Bistro
- Buono’s Authentic Pizzeria (Two locations)
- District Wine
- Honduras’ Kitchen
- Lasher’s Kitchen
- Rance’s Chicago Pizza
- Sweet Dixie Kitchen
- The Federal
- The Pie Bar
