TREASURE VALLEY — The annual pajama drive at Larry H. Miller dealerships has started and goes until November 30. The drive benefits the Boise Rescue mission women and children's shelter as part of the "Driven to Assist" initiative.

New pajamas in all sizes from women, boys and girls are needed all year, but guests staying at the City Light Home for Women and Children in Boise and Valley Women and Children's shelters in Nampa receive a Christmas care package with a new pair of pajamas.

“As families shelter together during the holidays, we want to do our part to help them feel warm and safe with a new pair of pajamas,” said Brad Moore, general manager, Larry H. Miller Honda Boise. “We hope our employees and customers will consider purchasing an extra pair while they’re doing their holiday shopping and bring these families a little bit of joy.”

Now through November 30, members of the public may drop off donations at the following locations:

“As temperatures drop, our shelters fill up. We’re anticipating 400-500 guests per night in the winter months, with approximately 200 of those guests being women and children,” said Rev. Bill Roscoe, president/CEO, Boise Rescue Mission. “On Christmas, we want to let these families know that we care about them and are so glad they’re staying with us, by giving them a special Christmas package including a new pair of pajamas. We appreciate Larry H. Miller Dealerships continued partnership over the years, and their employees and customers supporting our families with this drive.”
