Project Night Night needs your help this holiday season!
Project Night Night distributes 25,000 Night Night Packages each year to homeless and underserved children across the U.S. Each Night Night Package contains a blanket, a book, and a stuffed animal — nestled inside of a new canvas tote bag. These Night Night Packages greet children as they enter the shelter system and are used to reduce trauma and to provide access to educational materials.
In addition, Project Night Night establishes a foundation for lasting change through the meaningful, hands-on volunteer opportunities that we provide to tens of thousands of individuals each year. We make it simple for children, families, and companies to participate: whether by organizing a product drive, assembling Night Night Packages, or making financial donations. And the more people and institutions that volunteer their time, treasures, and talents, the more children in local communities we help.
Want to help?
Your gift of $20 will underwrite the cost of a Night Night Package for a homeless child! Make a tribute donation of $20, and we will send a holiday card to your special someone detailing the donation.
Participate in our Adopt a Night Night Package program by filling our tote bags and delivering them to a local shelter. Complete guidelines are on our website.
Donate your new blankets, books, or stuffed animals at one of our drop-off locations or mail them to us! To learn more, visit our website’s product donation page.
We feel that every homeless child has the basic right to feel safe, secure, loved and educated. At Project Night Night, we provide 3 quintessential childhood elements – a security blanket, a book, and a stuffed animal – each of which helps the child face the uncertainties and the negative side-effects attendant to homelessness. We run leanly and efficiently in order to maximize the quantity and quality of items that we distribute.
As demand for Project Night Night’s services continues to grow year after year, we rely on the community to support our efforts by making monetary or product donations. We are grateful for the support! To learn more about Project Night Night, please visit us on the web at www.ProjectNightNight.org.
