Anyone who has ever received a new pair of Christmas pajamas as a kid knows how it feels to snuggle in for the night and wait for Santa.
Unfortunately, many children have never experienced this warmth and joy, nor do they wake to find a special toy under the tree just for them
As a result, Browns Socialhouse is hoping the community can help make Christmas a little merrier for local kids.
The restaurant/bar in the Village Green Centre is hosting a pajama and toy drive Sunday.
Those who bring in a new, unwrapped pair of PJs or a new toy will receive 50 per cent off their food bill at Browns.
After speaking with Santa’s Anonymous, Browns general manager Gerran Thorhaug expanded the annual pajama drive to include toys due to the need.
“They’re seeing a definite high-demand,” said Thorhaug.
In addition to the Sunday event, Browns is teaming up with Vernon Toyota in the mall and on Dec. 10, it will be handing out gift certificates to those who donate.
“We want to fill one of their trucks,” said Thorhaug.
