Editor’s Note: This week, Jeff “the Coat Guy” Friedman, founder and director of Livingston Philanthropies, Inc. (LPI), has, in his own words, put out a call for volunteers before the beginning of the fall coat drive season.

By Jeff Friedman
I’d like to open with this beautiful quote from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.: “Everybody can be great. Because anybody can serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”
Along with requesting continued generous donations of all sorts to provide for the poor, homeless and disenfranchised, I want the community to know that Livingston Philanthropies Inc., (LPI) needs volunteers for the fall when season nine begins.

A Fond Farewell

This past week, Livingston lost a valuable community member who served as a role model for generations of township residents. Grace Russo died Monday, May 28, at the age of 87. She was known to many in town for her warm, loving attitude toward all. One friend of hers told us, “Even if you had just met her, each time she saw you, she would greet you like an old friend.” She was genuinely interested in her community and the people in it.

The many people who attended Grace’s funeral at St. Philomena Parish on Monday showed clearly how beloved Grace was here in Livingston. Driving along South Livingston Avenue just prior to the service was challenging. Drivers waited patiently to turn their cars into the church driveway, while many Town Hall employees could be seen walking to the church.
