Warm clothes to warm hearts. Communities in Schools of the South Plains hosts "P.J.'s, Nooks and Storybooks."

It provides pre-schoolers and elementary students at McWhorter Elementary with pajamas, a book and face time with Santa Claus.

It targets at-risk students, emphasizing reading and the spirit of giving.

"The truth is, we have children here in Lubbock, Texas, that might not have ever owned a pair of pajamas and might not have books at home, so for sure 267 kids that've come out tonight have been able to bring home books and pajamas and just get that one-on-one special attention from people in our community," Penny Jones said.

Jones says the organization hopes to spread the event to more of its 56 campuses.
