Livingston Coat Drive Continues Collecting; West Orange Jewelers Now a Drop-Off Point

The fourth annual Livingston Coat Drive is, according to founder and coordinator Jeff "The Coat Guy" Friedman, "chugging right along." Last weekend's dip in temperature, he noted, "is a reminder of the coming winter, and the continuing need for warm coats and accessories such as gloves, hats, and scarves. Unfortunately, we have plenty of takers already!"
Recently joining the Coat Drive effort is West Orange Jewelers at 16 Eisenhower Parkway in Roseland, which will now be serving as a drop-off point. "We are happy to welcome owners Rich​ard​ and Robyn Acceturo and their staff to our Coat Drive 'Dream Team,'" said Friedman. "Now there are even more convenient locations to drop your donations!"
