Livingston Philanthropies, Inc. (LPI), volunteers were pleased to see two long time LPI friends and distribution partners after a five month pandemic absence.  “Livingston neighbors continue to keep food, baby items and other scarce necessities rolling to the homeless, profoundly poor and disenfranchised communities in Newark,” said LPI director Jeff Friedman. Luis Martinez, building coordinator at Willing Heart Community Care Center, happily received new baby items, while Monique Kelly, kitchen and clothing barn manager at Bessie Green Community, does her happy dance after accepting new and badly needed men’s clothing.

Chrissy’s Column

The end of summer has always been a bittersweet time for me, as it is, hands down, my favorite season. I love the long, lazy days. The warm, lovely nights. The feel of the sun on my face. The “coconutty” smell of sunscreen. Flip-flops my only footwear. It’s a time for hanging with family and friends, vacation trips, and dinners outdoors, at home or at restaurants.

This year, of course, has seen everything disrupted. But my husband, Ray, and I have been amazingly fortunate. We have stayed healthy, and employed: the two greatest concerns in this year of pandemic. So have most of our friends, and as the spring warmed into summer, we were able to go back to doing many of the things that we enjoy, so that the summer felt nearly normal.

Give Back and Sigh Up

Give Back and Sign Up

As those of you who have checked your mailbox in recent weeks know, it’s that time of year when we are asked to contribute to an organization with members who work tirelessly to keep us safe: The Livingston First Aid Squad. It is important to realize that its active members are not paid. They are our neighbors and friends, who donate their time to be there for us during emergency medical situations, as well as provide many other supports and services to the community.

Livingston residents count on the LFAS in times of need but, unfortunately, when it comes to stepping up with monetary support, we have been falling short. Two years ago, less than 30 percent of the township donated. It is disappointing to think that so few of our residents support a service which could someday save their lives.
