Article Image Alt Text

With the holidays coming to an end, the real work of the Livingston Coat Drive is really beginning, says founder and coordinator Jeff "The Coat Guy" Friedman. "The holidays are a time of great generosity and giving… Also a time when the needs of poor, homeless and disenfranchised come to the forefront," he notes. "The holidays are over, but the severe plight of the not-so-rich-and-famous continues and is even worse now due to the really cold weather finally coming. So the Livingston Coat Drive is respectfully asking those who have not yet donated to do so immediately."
In the meantime, Friedman recounts two very touching instances of generosity this Coat Drive season.
