80-Year-Old Township Flag Pole Restored

After decades of going unused, the flag pole that sits outside the LivingstonAnimal Shelter will finally serve its purpose once again, thanks to some passionate employees and volunteer work.

Animal Control Officer Jim Salvadore said he was tired of looking at the rusted pole, and he and some fellow employees decided that now was the time to fix it up.

“I’m a military guy, I’m a Navy vet, and I’ve wanted to get the POW flag and American flag up there for years, but it’s always been too rusted,” Salvadore said. “I’ve been an employee here for 35 years and there’s never been a flag.”

Highlighting Livingston Philanthropies’ Partners: LPI and Willing Heart Community Center: A Long-Time Partnership to Aid the Homeless

In a continuing series of articles focusing on the distribution partners of Livingston Philanthropies, Inc. (LPI), this week LPI founder and director Jeff Friedman highlights the Willing Heart Community Care Center in Newark.
“As I’m often asked about the final destinations of generous Livingston donations, I’m pleased to share this profile of the Willing Heart Community Care Center, one of Newark’s most prolific non-profits,” said Friedman. “Willing Heart’s hands-on mission is to feed, clothe and counsel the homeless and extremely poor.”
Willing Heart’s roots are based in Metropolitan Baptist Church, which has been serving Newark for over 75 years. In June of 2008, the church expanded its goal of “revitalizing and rebuilding” the lives of its congregants to also encompass the citizens of Newark that live beyond the church structure.

Police Recover Vehicle Stolen at Gunpoint; Additional Car Theft, Burglaries Reported

An off-duty Livingston Police sergeant called in a suspicious vehicle earlier this week, leading to an arrest and the recovery of a stolen car. Another car was also reported stolen, and at least one vehicle was reportedly entered at a parking lot of the Livingston Mall this week.

At 6:41 p.m. on Monday, June 24, an off-duty officer was on his way to work when he observed a 2016 Honda Pilot being operated in a reckless manner, traveling eastbound on Route 10. The officer saw the vehicle travelling at a high rate of speed, changing lanes without signaling and running red lights before he eventually lost sight of the vehicle.

The officer notified on-duty officers to be on the lookout for the vehicle, and police officers located the vehicle in traffic at the intersection of East Northfield Road and East Cedar Street. A motor vehicle stop was then initiated.

Spotlight on LPI Charity: Livingston Residents’ Donations Benefit St. John’s Soup Kitchen and Women’s Center

St. John’s Soup Kitchen and Women’s Center, one of Livingston Philanthropies’ distribution partners, is located on McCarter Highway in Newark. Its website notes that the kitchen “has but one mission, and that is feeding the hungry. For over 40 years we have been providing food to those who have none in the Newark area. Few people know what it’s like to go without food, but everyday guests come to our kitchen to eat.”
Livingston Philanthropies Inc. (LPI) founder and director Jeff Friedman explains, “I originally caught the philanthropy ‘bug’ at St. John’s well over 15 years ago while volunteering in their soup kitchen for Friday lunches. Today, Saint John’s serves over 500 breakfasts and hot lunches, five days per week.”
LPI volunteers are not involved with serving food at St. John’s, but rather, with the distribution of thousands of toiletries and cosmetics gift bags to those on the food line or dining in the Women’s Center.
