WATERVILLE, N.Y. -- For five years, Waterville Elementary School students have participated in the Great Bedtime Story Pajama Drive.

For the past three weeks, they've been collecting items to make bedtime for little ones more pleasant.

Students brought in PJs, blankets, night lights, books, teddy bears, blankets and even snacks.

More than 400 items were collected this year.

Students in grades kindergarten through sixth participated.

“It's doing for others and stepping up when there is a need the students are really excited when they come in knowing they are helping someone out,” said Maureen Gray, the elementary school principal.

The items will be donated to the Waterville Area Food Pantry after they're packed up by the students.
