DENVER (CBS4)- Denver dressed in their PJ’s Thursday to help the homeless in the Mile High City. The event began 6 years ago when Denver’s Road Home partnered with Residence Inn Denver City Center to host the first PJ Party.

Now, it’s an annual event. Nearly $2 million has been raised so far to help get people off the streets.

Nearly 2,000 affordable housing units have been developed to help the homeless find independence.

Several businesses donate 10 percent of sales on PJ Day, while encouraging employees to wear pajamas to work.

This year’s goal is to raise $1 million.
