About Connor M. Holland Foundation

Caring for a child with pediatric cancer is one of the most challenging situations any parent could face. Medical problems quickly turn to financial issues as one or both caregivers stop working to focus on the health of their child. During this struggle, no one should have to worry about stacks of bills. At the Conner M. Holland Foundation, we aim to relieve families of financial and emotional burdens as they walk through the journey of a life-threatening illness. We believe that together, we can make a difference.

Based in south-central Pennsylvania, The Conner M. Holland Foundation is a recognized non-profit 501(c)3 organization that serves families in Lancaster, Lebanon, and York counties. The official registration and financial information of the Conner M. Holland Foundation may be obtained from the Pennsylvania Department of State by calling toll free, within Pennsylvania, 1 (800) 732-0999. Registration does not imply endorsement.

Another Comfy PJ Program Milestone!


Conner’s Comfy PJ Program has reached another amazing milestone! As we complete our 2014 pajama distribution, we are proud to announce that we have distributed over 3,100 pajamas to hospitals throughout the region!

As always, Conner’s wish became our mission to help children feel more comfortable during their hospital stay, and it is our goal to ensure that every child finds a pair of comfy pajamas in their rooms upon their first arrival to the hospital. That is why we value our partnerships with the following hospitals, who continue to help us continue our mission and bring joy to children with pediatric cancer:

• St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital – Memphis, TN
• CHOP – Philadelphia, PA
• St. Christopher’s – Philadelphia, PA
• HMC – Hershey, PA
• Lehigh Valley – Allentown, PA

On February 12th, 2015, we delivered 520 pairs of pajamas to Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital. Alycia Nygard, who is the Clinical Head Nurse at the Pediatric Hematology Oncology Unit, was so excited to receive our delivery. She told us that “the children are always thrilled to see a new pair of pajamas on their pillows!” This was true for five-year-old Taiven Schopf, who was diagnosed with Ependymoma in January 2015. He’s been spending a lot of time at the hospital, and like Conner, he just loves wearing his comfy pajamas!

Conners_Comfy_PJ_Program“Also like Conner, Taiven likes dinosaurs, but not the scary ones,” says Taiven’s father, Dean Schopf. “Thank you to the Conner M. Holland Foundation for the comfy pajamas.”

It is through the love and support of our partner hospitals that we can bring joy and comfort to children like Taiven, and our mission could not be continued without it. We sincerely thank every one of our hospital partners and we look forward to another successful year of collection and distribution of Conner’s Comfy PJ’s. 

The 2015 Comfy PJ Drive is coming up soon! For more information about our program, or if you would like to collect or donate a pair of pajamas (Boys & Girls, sizes 12 months to 16, with new tags), please contact us at 

About Conner’s Comfy PJ Drive

Children who receive inpatient hospital care for cancer are typically limited in their ability to play, often times spending most of their days in bed. We believe making a child comfortable during their stay is important to their overall well-being. We created the Conner’s Comfy PJs Program to meet this need. Each year during the month of May, we collect new pajamas that are distributed year-round to pediatric cancer units at the Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), St. Christopher, St. Jude, the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, and the Lehigh Valley Hospital. Since the beginning of the program in 2012, we have collected and distributed over 3,100 pajamas to children across the region.
