'PJ's and Pillowcases': Community project providing child hurricane victims with special kits

All kits will include pajamas, pillowcases, a pair of socks, a pair of underwear, a blanket and a special note with words of encouragement.

BEAUMONT, Texas — Survivors of Hurricane Harvey are giving back to victims of Hurricane Laura. 

PJ's and Pillowcases is a community project with a focus on children. It helps create special kits for kids, from infants to teens. 

No kit is the same, but all kits will include pajamas, pillowcases, a pair of socks, a pair of underwear, a blanket and a special note with words of encouragement.

The initiative was created by two women who lost everything in 2017 thanks to Harvey. 

Allie Johnson is 8 years old, and she's lending a hand to those impacted by making items for the kits. 

She created a yellow and pink pillowcase, and says she wants Louisiana to know they won't go through this alone.

"I want them to feel very very happy. I want them to really, really, really have faith in each other," Johnson said. 

She says her time spent at the sewing machine is to help other kids find a little comfort. 

"To make other kids happy because their houses got destroyed from the hurricane," Johnson said. 

If you want to create your own kit, you can drop it off at Hard Bean Coffee near Walmart in Lumberton or another site on the group's Facebook page. 

The cost to create a kit is roughly $25 per child. If you want to sponsor a kit or items, donations can be sent to PayPal.Me/PJSANDPILLOWCASES.
