Student Mentors at Greater New Bedford Regional Vocational Technical High School have been busy the last few weeks. They've been collecting new sets of pajamas for people hospitalized at both St. Luke's in New Bedford and Boston Children's Hospital.

The pajama drive is in its last few days, and the big push is on. The drive ends Wednesday, Nov. 27 at noon. Students Maddy Batchelor and Kara Koska and advisor Heather Larkin visited Townsquare Sunday this week to get the word out and ask for the public's help. Their goal is 500 pairs of pajamas.


Townsquare Sunday is a weekly public affairs program heard every Sunday morning at 6 on 1420 WBSM. The program highlights individuals and organizations working to improve the quality of life on the SouthCoast. Interview segments can also be heard on, the WBSM app, and on YouTube at WBSM-TV.
