SOMERSET COUNTY, NJ -The Somerset County Commission on the Status of Women (SCCSW) is conducting its annual “Project First Class” school-supplies collection through Aug. 16.
Children of families served by the Food Bank Network of Somerset County will benefit from the donations. Although any types of school supplies will be welcome, the children are most in need of backpacks--even gently used ones--as well as new notebooks, three-ring binders, paper, highlighters, markers, pens, pencils and crayons.
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. 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. Learning RX in Warren is also accepting donations.  
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 First Class co-chairs are Commission members Jane O’Donnell and Kacey Dyer. For 
more information, contact Jane O’Donnell at (908) 234-9302.
