‘BOBO Fridays’ Food Drive Jan. 20

Posted on January 13, 2017

Freeholder Patricia Walsh has announced that the first 2017 “Buy One, Bring One” collection of food for Somerset County families and individuals in need will be held Friday, Jan. 20.

To make a donation of 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 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.

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.

The program has collected more than 30 tons of donations since it began in July 2010.
