Beck PRIDE Center, Lady Red Wolves, collect pajamas
The Beck PRIDE Center for Wounded Veterans at Arkansas State University is joining forces with ASU’s Red Wolves women’s basketball in a project called “Pajammin’ With the Lady Red Wolves,” which will provide much-needed pajamas to children locally and in Iraq. Fans are asked to bring a new pair of pajamas to ASU’s basketball game against Florida Atlantic, at 12:05 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 25, in the Convocation Center. The collected sets of pajamas will then be divided, and some will be shipped for distribution to Iraqi children, while others will be distributed locally to non-profit agencies affiliated with Youths under 12 who wear pajamas or bring a new pair for donation are admitted free of charge to the game, while adults who wear them or bring a new pair pay only $5 admission. For details, contact Susan Tonymon, program director, Beck PRIDE Center, ext. 2624, or see the NewsPage release.
