‘BOBO Fridays’ Food Drive – July 15

Posted on July 11, 2016

The next “Buy One, Bring One” (BOBO) collection of food for Somerset County families and individuals in need will be held Friday, July 15.

“We’ve collected more than 28 tons of donations in the past six years,” said Freeholder Patricia Walsh, who created the program in July 2010.  “Thanks to all our donors for your continued generosity!”

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.

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.

Towns that have BOBO Fridays bins in their municipal buildings are Bedminster, Bound Brook, Franklin, Green Brook, North Plainfield and Raritan.

Canned or boxed food items are accepted. For examples of healthy foods to donate, visit http://bit.ly/DonateHealthy
