On June 20th, 249 community members came together to show their love and appreciation for PJ Library, donating over $25k! Thanks to an anonymous matching donor all donations up to $20K were doubled. Many PJ Library families donated citing their love for the program in their dedication.
“To our children who love to learn about Judaism through PJ library!”
“We love our books! Thank you, PJ library”
Currently, 6,500 families receive PJ Library in the GTA. The dollars raised during this campaign will provide a yearly subscription to 253 new families, providing the gift of 2,791 Jewish themed books and music to children in the GTA!
For many, it was their first donation to UJA Toronto. “PJ Library has proven to be an on-ramp to deeper involvement in joyful Jewish living,” says Dan Held, Executive Director of the Koschitzky Centre for Jewish Education, and now it also has proven to be an on-ramp to Jewish philanthropy in the community.”
The 24-hour campaign may be over but there is always an opportunity to give the gift of PJ Library. If you want to join these grateful PJ families in the effort to sustain and grow PJ Library in Toronto you can donate here.
