Ogdensburg teens Camille and Abigail Marshall have already started working on their third year collecting pajamas for needy children in St. Lawrence County and other counties this year as well.

The girls and their mother Melissa Carroll-Durham are currently working on their 501c3 nonprofit license and hoping to have it up and in effect by the end of November so they can help as many children they can.

The girls also raised their goal to 1,500 PJs, trying to cover more area.

Penny Jugs are placed in local stores in the Ogdensburg, Heuvelton, & Canton Road areas. Drop boxes will be out in local stores & banks starting Nov. 1.

PJs 4 X-mas is helping out more organizations this year as well. All Headstarts in St. Lawrence County, the Heuvelton Giving Tree, Renewal House and more.
