Next ‘BOBO’ Friday May 19th

Posted on May 17, 2017

The next “Buy One, Bring One” collection of food for Somerset County families and individuals in need will be held Friday, May 19.

“There are many people here in Somerset County, including children, who go to bed hungry,” said Freeholder Pat Walsh. “You can help by donating to our monthly food drive.”

To donate canned or boxed items, 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 Mary Jacobs Memorial Library (Rocky Hill), Bound Brook Memorial Library, Bridgewater Library, Manville Library, 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.

Although the “BOBO Fridays” collection date is the third Friday of every month, the bins are always available, so donations may be dropped off at any time during regular business hours at all locations.
