Article Image Alt Text

Livingston residents Susan Wollermann, left, her daughter Ally Beetle, and friend, Leslie Busold donated hundreds of new ponchos left over from a school pageant to Livingston Philanthropies, Inc. (LPI) for distribution to the homeless. “Here’s another example of Livingston residents stepping up for the needy,” said LPI founder and director Jeff Friedman. LPI volunteers are currently ordering diapers in all sizes and new men’s clothing, both of which are in high demand for those living below the poverty line. “The best way to help LPI keep these vital items rolling is to make a donation to LPI, P.O. Box 247, Livingston, NJ 07039, or by visiting us directly on PayPal at paypal.me/lpinj,” continued Friedman. “For those who can purchase diapers in all sizes online or at a local store, please email me for pick-up or drop-off at njhomeless@aol.com.”

The Livingston Police Department is warning residents to be cautious following reports of black bear sightings in the township.

“The black bear of New Jersey has continued to adapt to living closer in proximity to people and human development,” the police department wrote on Facebook. “They are learning to take advantage of human derived food sources. We have come to learn over the last couple of years that Livingston is currently home to the black bear. We want to assure the residents of Livingston that the police department has a close working relationship with the New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife, and in that capacity, we receive updates on the current policies and procedures concerning the enforcement and protection of both people and the animals.

The meeting was not streamed on Facebook, as it has been in the past, with “technical problems” cited as the reason for the change. Viewers were directed to join the webinar. It may be viewed on the Board of Education tab of the district website, livingston.org.
