'BOBO Fridays' Food Drive Continues Jan. 18
Somerset County Freeholder Deputy Director Patricia Walsh has announced that the next “Buy One, Bring One” collection of food for Somerset County families and individuals in need will be held Friday, Jan. 18.
“The Food Bank Network relies on these donations all year round,” she said, adding that the program has collected more than 44 tons of donations since its inception in 2010.
“The bins are available all month, so if you miss the third Friday, you are welcome to drop off your items at any time during regular business hours,” she said.
Look for the blue BOBO Fridays bins at these county locations: Somerset County Administration Building, 20 Grove St., Somerville; Park Commission Headquarters, 355 Milltown Road, Bridgewater; and Lord Stirling Stable, 256 S. Maple Ave., Basking Ridge.
Local libraries hosting the bins include the Bound Brook Memorial Library, Bridgewater Library, Manville Library, Mary Jacobs Memorial Library (Rocky Hill), North Plainfield Library, Peapack-Gladstone Library, Somerville Public Library, Warren Township Library and Watchung Library.
Towns that have BOBO Fridays bins in their municipal buildings are Bedminster, Bound Brook, Franklin, Green Brook, North Plainfield and Raritan.
