Oxford, Massachusetts – Robert J. Morton, president and CEO of bankHometown, announced that the bank will once again hold its annual holiday Pajama Time drive to help keep local children warm this winter season.

Customers, employees, neighbors, businesses, and community members are invited to donate brand new, unworn pajama sets, nightgowns, and slippers. While all donations are appreciated, children’s sizes 4T and up as well as women’s sizes small and medium are needed most. All of the sleepwear collected will be distributed to local community schools and organizations expressing the greatest need.

Donations can be made from December 2 to December 19 at any of bankHometown’s 15 branch locations. Visit for a list of branches.

“Winters can be especially hard on families, given the added expenses for clothing and other necessities,” said Morton. “bankHometown invites the community to come together during this season of giving to ensure children in need stay warm and comfortable.”
