WOODBURY — The Science National Honor Society at Nonnewaug hosted a “PJ Day” fundraiser to benefit CT Children’s Hospital. Students at NHS had the option to wear pajamas to school, and donations were collected throughout the school day. All the proceeds from the fundraiser were donated to the Connecticut Children’s Hospital. 

According to a statement from CT Children’s Hospital, “ PJ Day for the Kids is a statewide event that helps fund research and care for kids at Connecticut Children’s. {In previous years] over 360 schools and 180 businesses participated.” 

April 9th, the day of the fundraiser, student members of the NHS Science National Honor society collected money before school and during the lunch waves. By the end of the day, $350.00 was collected.

NHS science teacher Shelly Stone, leader of Science National Honors Society, put the money and the request for the donation into the central office on April 9th. Then the check will be cut and sent to Connecticut Children’s Hospital.

Stone stated, “We wanted to raise awareness for the CT children’s hospital and support future research.”
