Project Warm Your Heart
to Collect Winter Clothing for Kids
Donations Accepted Through Nov. 21
The Somerset County Commission on the Status of Women (SCCSW) is conducting its fifth annual “Project Warm Your Heart” to collect new or gently-used coats, mittens, gloves, scarves and hats for needy children. Donations are requested by Nov. 21.
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 , now through Friday, Nov. 21. The office is open weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., except holidays on Nov. 4 and 11. 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.
“Project Warm Your Heart” co-chairs are Commission members Smriti Agrawal and Susan Sun. For more information, contact Ms. Agrawal at 908-393-5550.
