Show 550, November 4, 2023: Huntington Meats – Holiday Kids Pajama Drive

Jim Cascone of Huntington Meats and Farmers Market Poultry

“There’s just something about a new pair of jammies that says ‘cozy and safe’ to kids, and Huntington Meats is doing their part to make sure nightly bedtime rituals like fresh pajamas will provide a reassuring and peaceful good night to in-need children this holiday season. Huntington Meats’ sister shop Farmers Market Poultry will also be participating in the drive.”

“The two shops offering quality product are coming together to participate in the 3rd Holiday Kids Pajama Drive to take place the entire month of November. The goal is to collect 300 pairs of pajamas for distribution to local agencies servicing homeless and low- income families.”

“Customers who visit either of the shops and donate a pair of new, unwrapped pajamas valued at $10 or more will receive a complimentary pound of ground beef or homemade sausages from Huntington Meats, or a dozen fresh eggs from Farmers Market Poultry. In addition to PJs for children aged infant to age 18, the shops will be collecting children’s slippers, robes, security blankets, story books and toothbrush / toothpaste sets through November 30th. At the conclusion of the Pajama Drive, collected items will be distributed to Los Angeles area agencies for gift giving to their youngest clientele over the holiday season.”

“Going on year three, we felt this was a unique idea for the holidays,” said Jim Cascone, proprietor of both Huntington Meats and Farmers Market Poultry. “Toy drives are great, but we forget that some kids may never have received a brand-new pair of PJs, which was something many of us took for granted growing up.”

The shops are located at The Original Farmers Market, 6333 W. 3rd Street, Los Angeles 90036. Huntington Meats is located at Stall 350 and Farmers Market Poultry is located at Stall 216.
