Huntington Meats and Farmers Market Poultry at the Original Farmers Market are holding a holiday pajama donation drive in November to help children and families.
Owner Jim Cascone said the goal is to collect 300 sets of pajamas for distribution to local organizations serving homeless and low income families. Customers who visit either shop and donate a pair of new, unwrapped pajamas valued at $10 or more will receive a complimentary pound of ground beef or homemade sausages from Huntington Meats, or a dozen fresh eggs from Farmers Market Poultry. In addition to pajamas for infants to teens 18 years old, the shops will collect children’s slippers, robes, security blankets, story books and toothbrushes and toothpaste sets through Nov. 30.
“We felt this was a unique idea for the holidays,” Cascone said. “Toy drives are great, but we forget that some kids may never have received a brand new pair of PJs, which was something many of us took for granted growing up.”
“Our goal is to try make nights a little comfier for those kids that may be experiencing homelessness or are members of a family that just doesn’t have the means to purchase their little ones new pajamas,” head butcher Jon Escobedo added. “We want to do our part to make sure that kids in need across Los Angeles have new pajamas to snuggle in this holiday season.” The shops are located at the Original Farmers Market, 6333 W. Third St. Stall 350 and Stall 216. For information, visit huntingtonmeats.com.
