Article Image Alt Text

The Livingston Coat Drive, founded and coordinated by Livingston resident Jeff "the Coat Guy" Friedman, is continuing its mission of "providing warmth to the poor, homeless and disenfranchised." The Coat Drive is now in its fifth year of collecting new and gently used winter coats and accessories, and has added men's business wear to its collection. These items are delivered to multiple Newark distribution partners to help clients dress appropriately for job interviews.
"Although we are all enjoying the relatively temperate weather, the forecast calls for evening temperatures in the 30s," said Friedman. "Some rake leaves, others prepare their homes for winter and still others take out their winter clothes. The Livingston Coat Drive requests that our friends and neighbors be aware of excess or unneeded coats, winter accessories, and men’s business wear for donation to those who truly have nothing. Why not reallocate resources?"
