Editor’s Note: This week, Jeff “the Coat Guy” Friedman, founder and director of Livingston Philanthropies, Inc. (LPI), has, in his own words, put out a call for volunteers before the beginning of the fall coat drive season.

By Jeff Friedman
I’d like to open with this beautiful quote from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.: “Everybody can be great. Because anybody can serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”
Along with requesting continued generous donations of all sorts to provide for the poor, homeless and disenfranchised, I want the community to know that Livingston Philanthropies Inc., (LPI) needs volunteers for the fall when season nine begins.
