Donate Winter Clothing for Kids thru Nov. 1

Posted on October 9, 2019


The Somerset County Commission on the Status of Women (SCCSW) is conducting its 10th annual Project Warm Your Heart to collect new or gently-used coats, mittens, gloves, scarves and hats for needy children.  Donations are requested by Friday, Nov. 1. 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 at the Somerset County Freeholders’ Office on the third floor of the county administration building, 20 Grove St., Somerville, now through Friday, Nov. 1. The office is open weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., except Columbus Day, Oct. 14. Free parking is available in the adjacent Bernie Field Parking Deck off East High Street. This year, the SCCSW is collaborating with the Somerset County Library System of New Jersey (SCLSNJ), so that there are more drop-off locations throughout the county to make it more convenient for residents to donate their items. Donation bins can also be found at the following SCLSNJ branches: Bridgewater, Hillsborough, Mary Jacobs in Rocky Hill, Manville, North Plainfield, Somerville, and Warren Township. For more information, visit year’s Project Warm Your Heart’s chair is Commissioner Stella Ayala. For more information, contact her at 732-715-4916.
