Approximately 125,000 tamariki live in Counties Manukau and 48% of these children live in areas of high socio-economic deprivation.
Jammies in June is now in its tenth year of giving and every year, with the support of our generous donors, Middlemore Foundation gives pyjamas to thousands of kids in need across South Auckland.
Since 2011 we've donated over 81,500 pairs of jammies to keep our tamariki warm through winter, with the help of our Jammies Army made up of our incredible supporters and businesses.
Thousands of kids don't have warm pyjamas to wear in winter. Together, we can change that.
How you can support Jammies in June:
Purchase online from a retailer/small business and get the items shipped to us OR purchase jammies in-store and send them to us
Make a donation in lieu of a pair of pyjamas
Sign up to be a drop-off point
Retailers include but are not limited to:
Farmers, The Warehouse, Postie Plus, Kmart, Cotton On, Bed Bath & Beyond and Peter Alexander.
What size pyjamas do you need?
We need pyjamas for children aged between 0 to 18 years. Adult size pyjamas are also useful for children in their late teens.
Do you accept pre-loved pyjamas?
Yes but we ask they be free from stains and tears. The pre-loved pyjamas are distributed to families in the community who are in need.
What do I do after I finish collecting pyjamas?
Can we drop off our pyjamas at Kidz First and get social media and company newsletter pictures?
For privacy reasons we do not allow donations to be dropped off to the wards at Kidz First.
Do I get a receipt upon making a donation?
If you are making donations, a receipt acknowledging your donation with thanks will be emailed or mailed to you. Please be sure to add your email or postal address when making the donation.
What happens with the money?
But, our mahi isn't done
We need your support.
Your donation will support us in giving jammies to our tamariki in need and keep them warm through winter.
