Livingston Philanthropies Director Notes: ‘Giving Season’ Over, But ‘Freezing Season’ Here

By Jeff Friedman
Editor’s Note: Here, Jeff “the Coat Guy” Friedman, founder and director of Livingston Philanthropies, reflects on the new year and the need for continued donations after the end of the holiday “giving season.”

Cliff Young, contributing writer for crosswalk.com, shared his vision of the new year, which could be similar to the thoughts of many of us here in Livingston. “I love New Year’s because it signifies the end of a chapter, one that probably didn’t reach my highest expectations, yet holds the hopes, the dreams, and the possibilities of a whole new year,” he said. “I see it as a brand new start, a start that I need every year to help me get past the past.

Called to Duty

Everything good in her life has flowed from her experiences in the Navy WAVES, says Ruth Cross.

Cross, 95, and a resident of Livingston since 1953, served during World War II in the Navy’s WAVES (Women Accepted for Volunteer Service) program from 1944 to 1946.

Ruth grew up in Norwalk, Connecticut, where, at age 16, she left high school to help care for her mother and sister. She was working in a tie factory when the war broke out. As the war continued, she left the tie factory to work at a defense munitions plant in Bridgeport, Connecticut, putting in multiple shifts a day.

By 1944, she says, “the war was pretty bad,” and she had begun thinking she wanted to enlist in theWAVES. “Our family was always a military family, and I wanted to be part of it,” Ruth notes.

By Jeff Friedman
Especially at this time of year, the “giving season,” we are assaulted by a variety of national charities looking for donations prior to the end of the tax year. Lots of good ones, too. But, as the founder of Livingston Philanthropies, Inc., I’m making the case for keeping a portion of one’s giving right here in town.
