School Supplies Donated to Food Bank Network of Somerset County
The Somerset County Commission on the Status of Women (SCCSW) recently presented hundreds of school supplies to the Food Bank Network of Somerset County as part of the commission’s annual “Project First Class.” Children of families served by the Food Bank Network are benefiting from the donations again this year.
Backpacks, notebooks, pens, pencils, markers, glue, paper and binders were among the many items donated by individuals, companies and organizations. Sanofi-Aventis in Bridgewater, Software House International in Franklin and Wilkin & Guttenplan, P.C., an East Brunswick CPA firm, all made sizeable 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.
