BROCKTON, Mass. — NorthEast Electrical, a Sonepar Company and full-service electrical distributor, announced that as part of its Community Outreach Program, it is donating nearly 175 pairs of new pajamas and over 100 new books to The Pajama Program. In the month of October, all branches of NorthEast hosted events and invited associates, customers, and vendor partners to donate items to the program.
The Pajama Program is a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that promotes and supports a comforting bedtime routine for all children to help them thrive. The Pajama Program focuses on children who are faced with losing loved ones, foster care placement, inadequate or unsafe housing, homelessness, violence in the home, or whose parents struggle to make ends meet.
“This was our first community outreach project that included involvement not only from our associates, but also our customer and vendor partners throughout the region,” said Nate Pedro, NorthEast’s Community Outreach Program Coordinator. “It was great to see the amount of positive feedback and support we received for such a heartwarming cause as the Pajama Program. I look forward to rolling out similar initiatives in the future.”
