Winter Clothing Drive to Benefit Needy Children
‘Project Warm Your Heart’
to Collect Winter Clothing for Kids
Donations Accepted Through Dec. 6
The Somerset County Commission on the Status of Women (SCCSW) is conducting its fourth annual “Project Warm Your Heart” to collect new or gently-used coats, mittens, gloves, scarves and hats for needy children. Donations are requested by Dec. 6.
Children of families served by the Food Bank Network of Somerset County 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, now through Friday, Dec. 6. The office is open weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., except holidays on Nov. 5, 11, 28 and 29. Free parking is available in the adjacent Bernie Field Parking Deck off East High Street.
“Once again we had a huge response to the school-supplies collection,” said Freeholder Mark Caliguire, commission liaison. “Project Warm Your Heart is another opportunity for residents, organizations and businesses to show their generosity to 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.
“Project Warm Your Heart” co-chairs are Commission members Elizabeth Savage, Jane O’Donnell and Felecia Nace. For more information, contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org
