Last year’s drive collected more than 200 pairs of pajamas for homeless families

 

BOISE (October 12, 2021) – Larry H. Miller Dealerships is hosting a pajama drive for the Boise Rescue Mission’s shelters from October 15 – November 15 as part of its “Driven to Assist” initiative. New pajamas and pajama sets in all sizes for men, women and children are needed year-round, but on Christmas, guests staying at the organization’s shelters receive a special Christmas care package with a new pair of pajamas included.

 

“Warm pajamas are an essential item that many of us take for granted, but something that our neighbors sheltering at the Boise Rescue Mission desperately need,” said Tom Greene, general manager, Larry H. Miller Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram Boise. “We hope that while community members are doing their holiday shopping, that they will pick up an extra pair of pajamas to help individuals and families in need during the cold winter months.”

 

Now through Nov. 15, members of the public may drop off donations at the following locations:

 

 

“As temperatures drop, our shelters fill up. We’re anticipating more than 300 homeless men, women and children per night in the cold winter months,” said Rev. Bill Roscoe, president/CEO, Boise Rescue Mission. “On Christmas, we want to let these families know that we care about them and are so glad they’re staying with us, by giving them a special Christmas package including a new pair of warm pajamas. We appreciate our Larry H. Miller Dealerships continued partnership over the years, and their employees and customers for supporting our families with this drive.”

 

Boise Rescue Mission provides programs and services aimed at helping to restore dignity, a sense of purpose and hope to the thousands of homeless men, women and children in Ada, Canyon and surrounding counties.
