Project Warm Your Heart

to Collect Winter Clothing for Kids

Donations Accepted Through Oct. 30

            The Somerset County Commission on the Status of Women (SCCSW) is conducting its sixth annual “Project Warm Your Heart” to collect new or gently-used coats, mittens, gloves, scarves and hats for needy children.  Donations are requested by Oct. 30.

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, Oct. 30.  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 Deputy Director 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” chair is Commissioner Sara Sooy. For more information, contact her at 908-334-6022.
