Project Warm Your Heart

Collecting Winter Clothing for Kids through Oct. 31

 The Somerset County Commission on the Status of Women is conducting its eighth annual “Project Warm Your Heart” collection of new or gently-used coats, mittens, gloves, scarves and hats for children only. Donations are requested by Oct. 31.

Children of families served by the Food Bank Network of Somerset County and other organizations will benefit from this winter-clothing drive, which follows the commission’s recent collection of school supplies held during the summer months.

Donations may be dropped off to the Somerset County Freeholders’ Office on the third floor of the county administration building at 20 Grove St., Somerville, through Tuesday, Oct. 31. The office is open weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Free parking is available in the adjacent Bernie Field Parking Deck off East High Street.

“Somerset County residents, organizations and businesses have been so generous to our many initiatives that support families in our communities,” said Freeholder Patricia Walsh, commission liaison. “Project Warm Your Heart is another opportunity to help Somerset County children in need.”

The SCCSW serves as an advisory board to the Board of Chosen Freeholders to address present and potential needs of women and to develop a greater public awareness of women’s issues.

This year’s “Project Warm Your Heart” chair is Commissioner Beverly Briggs-Lawson. For more information, contact her at 732-433-2706.
