Toiletries Challenge Meets Immediate Need; Dress Clothes Delivered in Time for ‘Shopping Day’

By Jeff Friedman
Editor’s Note: Jeff Friedman, founder of the Livingston Philanthropies, which runs a seasonal coat drive and a year ’round toiletries drive, continues his “guest appearances” in the Tribune’s pages as he writes about his organization’s ongoing efforts to help the “poor, homeless, and disenfranchised” in urban Essex County.
    •    •    •
As Livingston Philanthropies “Toiletries and Cosmetics Challenge” for the poor, homeless and disenfranchised continues, I received a message from our friend and distribution partner, Markisha Deville from Newark Emergency Services For Families, Inc. (NESF). Markisha is NESF’s program director for the Supportive Assistance for Individuals and Families Program. Not knowing of Livingston’s ongoing Toiletries Challenge, she asked if I knew where to get toiletries for distribution at an upcoming job fair. I told Markisha that she came to the right place.
