"Many times all the children get is a toy or two and don’t get to enjoy in the excitement of a new pair of Christmas Pajamas or a new warm blanket. So, we are excited about partnering with the Lutcher Theater again this year to be able to provide as many of those kids with a new set of Christmas Pajamas and a warm blanket," said Jan Zuniga, The Salvation Army of Orange County Captain. 

A donation of pajamas for children of any age and warm blankets can make a big difference for local families in need during the holiday season. 

"Last year our Lutcher patrons donated 110 cozy blankets and 92 adorable pajama sets. Their generosity never ceases to amaze me," said Leah Stark, Lutcher's Marketing Manager.
