Donated PJs equals half off food this Sunday at Browns

People can drop off pyjamas at Walnut Grove Browns Socialhouse on Dec. 8

Donating a new pair of pyjamas will result in 50 per cent off your food bill this Sunday at any Browns Socialhouse location.

The Walnut Grove location is at A101 20159 88 Ave.

The initiative is part of the fourth annual Christmas Pyjama Drive, which began in 2010 and was the unique idea of then-six-year-old Reese Shelly, to make Christmas a little brighter for disadvantaged children.

That first year saw 365 pairs of pyjamas collected at the Richmond location of Brown Socialhouse. Reese’s father Todd Shelly co-owns the Richmond, Surrey and New Westminster locations.

And now, for the first time, all of the Browns Socialhouses in western Canada and Washington state are on board.

The collected pyjamas will be given to local Christmas bureaus and charities.

Granville Island Brewing has also jumped on board and will donate ten cents from every sleeve of their Lions Winter Ale at Browns Socialhouses to the Christmas Pyjama Drive.

Since it began, 4,035 pairs of pyjamas have been collected.
