LPI Partners with Livingston Lions’ Club

Article Image Alt Text

Livingston Philanthropies, Inc. (LPI) has partnered with the Living-ston Lions’ Club to aid the homeless, announced LPI founder and director Jeff Friedman.
“As the extreme needs of the homeless and hopelessly poor continue after ‘giving season’ ends like the crash of a sledgehammer, I am pleased to announce that Livingston Philanthropies, Inc. has begun a new partnership with the Livingston Lions’ Club,” he said. “Enabled by Livingston’s continued generosity, LPI recently shipped hundreds of new winter gloves and hats for distribution at a Harrison Lions’ Club food pantry event. Livingston resident and New Jersey Lions district governor Nalit Patel and his son, Bansi, recently visited LPI World Headquarters (my garage) to pick up new stuffed animals for distribution at a big Lions event in Paterson.”
Friedman is asking Livingston residents to continue participating in LPI’s “Personal Shopping/Shipping for the Homeless” initiative. “Whether it’s warm coats, gloves, hats, diapers, baby formula, wipes or lotion, the need is catastrophic during the pandemic,” he said. Items purchased online at tremendous January discounts may be dropped or shipped to Friedman’s home or shipped directly to one of LPI’s long-time distribution partners. “For those who enjoy the means,” Friedman offered, “why not share with folks lacking the very basics of life during the freezing cold pandemic?”
For more information on donating, email Friedman at njhomeless@aol.com.
