Adopt-A-Family Program to Aid Needy Residents

Donations Sought to Provide Thanksgiving Meals

Somerset County Freeholder Patricia Walsh has announced the fifth annual Adopt-A-Family program that will help provide Thanksgiving meals for needy families.

“We often hear that people want to help others within their own community,” said Freeholder Walsh. “This is a perfect way for residents to earmark donations to help feed needy families in their own or neighboring towns.”

The estimated cost of a Thanksgiving meal is $40 to feed a family of 4.  If $40 is difficult for you, any amount will be gratefully accepted.  To donate, fill in the registration form below and mail a check to the addresses provided.  You can name the town you wish your donation to go to by filling in the memo section of your check.
