To help the victims of Haiti’s disastrous earthquake, over 300 Memorial Middle School students paid two dollars for the privilege of wearing their pajamas to school one day.

“We are proud of the students’ initiative to want to help, and this was creative and different,” said sixth-grade teacher Sue DiGeronimo, who along with Dee Brideau worked with the Student Council in organizing the fundraiser.

The $600 went to United Way of North Central Massachusetts, which is working through Operation Helping Hands, in providing emergency relief to the Haitian earthquake victims.
