The Livingston Coat Drive is now winding down for the season, announced founder Jeff Friedman of Livingston. Friedman, known popularly as "The Coat Guy," explained, "Final donations are still arriving at the West Essex Tribune office and through private pick-up. This means there will be one more delivery prior to the conclusion of an ever-growing effort to provide warmth to the poor, homeless and disenfranchised."
Along with Coat Drive "Dream Team" volunteer Candi Samansky of Livingston, Friedman delivered 64 warm coats and assorted accessories to the North Reformed Church on Broad Street in Newark. "I've learned that North Reformed Church is a major provider of food and clothing to the poor in homeless in downtown Newark," noted Friedman. "So I return there often, because they always need and appreciate new 'stock.' "
