MARBLEHEAD AND SALEM ORANGE LEAF FROZEN YOGURT STORES HOPE TO 
WARM THE HEARTS OF THOSE IN NEED THROUGH A PAJAMA DRIVE TO BENEFIT 
A BED FOR EVERY CHILD 

Customers donating new PJs will receive 3 oz. of free yogurt. 

What: 

Marblehead & Salem Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt are collecting donations from customers this holiday season as part of the Orange Leaf Pajama Drive to benefit A Bed For Every Child. For over 25 years, the Coalition has operated the Furniture Bank which stabilizes over 3,000 households a year transitioning from homelessness to their own home by providing donated furniture and household goods to make a house a home 

Customers who donate one new pair of pajamas at the Marblehead & Salem Orange Leaf locations will be rewarded with 3 oz. of free yogurt in exchange for their donation. 

The Orange Leaf Pajama Drive is a community-giving initiative that will take place in participating stores nationwide. With more than 200 stores across the country, each market has selected its own local nonprofit to receive the donations of brand new pajamas. 

When: 

Friday, Nov. 9 through Sunday, Dec. 16, 2012 

Where: 

Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt 

12A Atlantic Ave 76 Lafayette St 

Marblehead, MA 01945 Salem, MA 01970 

Why: 

“Orange Leaf is an unconventional brand – and we wanted to do something different from the more traditional food or coat drive this holiday season,” said Reese Travis, CEO of Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt. “Memories of cozy pajamas during the winter months warm our souls. Through our Pajama Drive, Orange Leaf is hoping to help thousands of people stay a little warmer this winter, too. Sometimes it’s the simple things like a warm pair of pajamas that can really make a difference.”
