“Personal Shopping/Shipping for the Homeless” LPI Initiative Growing, Notes Charity’s Director

Article Image Alt Text

Livingston Philanthropies, Inc. (LPI) founder and director Jeff Friedman has noted that the non-profit organization’s “Personal Shopping/Shipping for the Homeless” initiative is continuing to thrive.
As an example, he notes that, after learning about the “Personal Shopping/Shipping for the Homeless” program, Robert Waldron, operations manager at Gilbane Building Company in Newark, decided to get involved.
“I know of LPI, as I lived in Living-ston for my entire life before moving to Roseland a few years ago,” Waldron said. “So every week I read the LPI articles in the West Essex Tribune.”
Waldron recounted, “The company I work for has been in Newark for about a year and half, and earlier this year we did something directly with St. John’s Soup Kitchen and Food Pantry in Newark (a long-time LPI distribution partner). When a few of us sat down a couple of weeks ago to review what we would do next, I suggested LPI.”

YMCA May Move to Nearby Grace Lutheran Church Property

YMCA May Move to Nearby Grace Lutheran Church Property

The West Essex YMCA, currently located at 321 South Livingston Avenue, may move to a nearby location — right across the street — where it could build a new, larger facility. Currently, the property is the site of Grace Lutheran Church, which is expected to move if a deal is completed.

The general concept for the proposed new YMCA, as well as the location of the church property at 304 South Livingston Avenue, was expected to be presented to the neighboring properties during an informal community Zoom meeting this week after the press deadline. The YMCA was also discussed by the Township Council and township attorneys in closed session at Monday’s regular meeting.

Township Council Honors County Clerk During First Regular Meeting of the Year

The Township Council held its first regular meeting of 2021 on Monday, January 11, during which the Essex County clerk was issued a proclamation and the first resolutions of the New Year were passed. The meeting was livestreamed and may be viewed on the Livingston Township, NJ Facebook page.

At the start of the Council meeting, Mayor Shawn Klein made a statement condemning the “hateful and seditious act at the Capitol,” and held a moment of silence for the officer, a New Jersey native, “who died protecting the Capitol from insurrection.” An additional statement was later issued by the entire Council and may be seen elsewhere in this edition of the Tribune.

Klein Named Mayor, Meinhardt Deputy Mayor At Township Council’s Organizational Meeting

Klein Named Mayor, Meinhardt Deputy Mayor At Township Council’s Organizational Meeting

As is tradition in town, the Livingston Township Council held its annual organizational meeting on the morning of New Year ‘s Day. The meeting, typically held at the Senior/Community Center, was instead held virtually this year due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Still, hundreds of volunteers were appointed to the township’s various committees and boards, the 2020 mayor and deputy mayor were selected, and a few surprise guests appeared during the meeting due in part to its being held remotely. There were a few minor technical difficulties during the roughly 90 minute proceedings, but the virtual ceremony allowed more people to view the meeting and do so safely from their homes. Shawn Klein was unanimously voted by the Council as the next mayor, and Ed Meinhardt was unanimously selected as deputy mayor. Both previously held those positions in 2017. Rudy Fernandez concluded his third term serving as mayor.
