Posted on May 12, 2016

Freeholder Director Patricia Walsh has announced that the next “Buy One, Bring One” (BOBO) collection of food for Somerset County families and individuals in need will be held Friday, May 20.

“We’ve collected more than 27 tons of donations to date,” said Freeholder Walsh, who created the program almost six year ago.  “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.
