SOMERVILLE, NJ - The next “Buy One, Bring One” (BOBO) collection of food for Somerset County families and individuals in need will be held Friday, Aug. 18.

“School hasn’t started yet, so children served by school lunch programs need another source of nutritious food to keep them going throughout the day,” said Freeholder Patricia Walsh. “You can help by donating canned or boxed food at any of our convenient ‘BOBO Fridays’ locations.”

Look for the blue BOBO Fridays bins at these county sites: Somerset County Administration Building, 20 Grove St., Somerville; Park Commission Headquarters, 355 Milltown Road, Bridgewater; and Lord Stirling Stable, 256 S. Maple Ave., Basking Ridge.
