Livingston Philanthropies Re-Invents Itself in Response to Coronavirus Crisis

Article Image Alt Text

For almost nine years, Livingston Philanthropies, Inc. (LPI) has directly delivered donated coats, family clothing, diapers, toiletries, socks, gloves and more to the homeless and those living below the poverty line. Now, LPI is re-inventing itself, as physical donations and on-site deliveries are on hold during the coronavirus outbreak.
Noted LPI founder and director Jeff Friedman, “LPI will ship bulk cases of new items directly from wholesale vendors to our eight Newark and East Orange distribution associates. We are soliciting immediate funding to make it happen. To personally help the homeless and profoundly poor, especially now, you can do it conveniently on Paypal at paypal.me/lpinj; on our Facebook funding page at Livingston Philanthropies, Inc.; or by mail to LPI, P.O. Box 247, Livingston, NJ 07039. Tax-deductible individual and family contributions make all the difference.”
