Volunteers, SUV Desperately Needed: Non-Profit Organization Makes First Purchase For Homeless Thanks to Residents’ Donations

Livingston Philanthropies, Inc., has, for the first time, been able to purchase items for the homeless thanks to residents’ donations, announced director Jeff “The Coat Guy” Friedman.
“While Philanthropies volunteers have used personal funding to provide new items for the ‘poor, homeless, and disenfranchised’ over the past seven seasons, the purchase of bedbug proof mattress covers for The Apostles’ House in Newark was made possible by local monetary donations,” Friedman said. “That’s because Livingston Philanthropies, Inc. (LPI) is now an official 501(c)(3) charity, able to legally accept cash donations. May I suggest keeping a portion of one’s philanthropic giving local?”

County Officials Outline Plans To Improve Riker Hill Art Park

Essex County officials held a public meeting at Town Hall on Tuesday, October 9, to present plans for improvements to Riker Hill Art Park with roughly two dozen neighbors and residents in attendance.

Essex County executive Joseph DiVincenzo noted that a meeting had been held in January to solicit public input on improving the site, which was formerly a Nike missile base and is currently an artists’ colony. Based on neighbors’ concerns and suggestions, a preliminary plan was subsequently developed which calls for renovations to the existing buildings and the creation of a community garden and a scenic overlook. The county has set aside a budget of $4 million to make the improvements. County officials hope to have construction underway by July 1, 2019.
