CHAMPAIGN-URBANA -- Kids in Ms. Kirby's class can't seem to get the tune "What Does the Fox Say?" out of their heads. So their teacher is using the song to spread the word about a pajama drive.

Area schools are competing to see who can collect the most pajamas for charity, but they need your help to win. The PJ Drive kicked off Wednesday. There are already a few pairs at Robeson Elementary, in Champaign.

The drive is bigger this year because Robeson and Urbana's Leal Elementary won't be the only schools involved. You can drop off donations at Edison Middle School or Urbana Middle School.

Ms. Kirby says she hopes the song helps kids remember why they're doing the project. They're accepting new or gently-used pajamas. The drive lasts until December 6.
