PJs pg 3 1-11-18

PJs poured in
PUTNAM — The annual bankHometown collection of pajamas and slippers and cash did well this past December.
In its 13th year, according to Monique L. Mailloux, Putnam branch member, “We collected a total of 448 pair of pajamas/slippers.” As cash was donated, the staff would purchase PJs.
The five Connecticut branches — Putnam, Killingly, Thompson, Brooklyn and Woodstock — participated in the collection this year.
She said the pajamas were delivered around Dec. 18 to five local schools, Thompson, Putnam, Woodstock (TEEG), Killingly and Brooklyn. They were divided up equally amongst the five schools.
Each person who donated either a pair of pajamas or slippers or $5 was entered in a drawing for $250 worth of heating assistance. Mailloux said they did have a winner.
