Pajamas will be collected at Carr Hardware locations starting Monday as part of a monthlong pajama drive.

"Last year’s effort collected more than 400 pairs of pajamas from individuals, groups, and local businesses," the Jewish Federation of the Berkshires stated in a news release. "We want to build on that success."

Monetary donations, which will be used to buy pajamas, are also welcome. For more information, contact Susan Frisch Lehrer at 413-442-4360, ext. 14, or

The donations will be distributed to families during the holiday season.
