WHAT: Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt Louisiana (OLYLA, LLC) stores (Find us on Facebook, Follow us on Twitter , & Read our Blog) are collecting donations from customers this holiday season as part of the Orange Leaf Pajama Drive to benefit The Louisiana Baptist Children’s Home, The Children’s Shelter’s of Acadiana Youth, Inc., and RADIO M*A*S*H. Customers who donate one new pair of pajamas (Children and Adult sizes) at any of the 8 OLYLA Orange Leaf locations (Monroe, West Monroe, Natchitoches, New Iberia, Lafayette, Lake Charles, Sulphur, and Houma) will be rewarded with 3oz of free yogurt in exchange for their donation. The Orange Leaf Pajama Drive is a community-giving initiative that will take place in participating stores nationwide. With more than 200 stores across the country, each market has selected its own local nonprofit to receive the donations of brand new pajamas. WHEN: Friday, Nov. 9 through Sunday, Dec. 16, 2012 WHY: “Orange Leaf is an unconventional brand – and we wanted to do something different from the more traditional food or coat drive this holiday season,” said Reese Travis, CEO of Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt. “Memories of cozy pajamas during the winter months warm our souls. Through our Pajama Drive, Orange Leaf is hoping to help thousands of people stay a little warmer this winter, too. Sometimes it’s the simple things like a warm pair of pajamas that can really make a difference.” (Monroe & West Monroe donations) About Louisiana Baptist Children’s Home - Where Love takes you in!
