Extend the “Giving Season”

This is a difficult time of year for those in need. The holidays, often known as the “Giving Season,” are over. In January, charitable giving slows down significantly, but unfortunately, the need for it does not. Many charitable organizations publicize themselves heavily during November and December, and have members soliciting funds in person during that time, but then seem to drop rather suddenly off the radar after New Year’s Day.

The post-holiday season is a tough one for those in financial difficulty; holiday bills are rolling in on top of regular monthly bills, rent must be paid, food must be purchased. But the support that got those in need through November and December is suddenly no longer there.

Livingston Philanthropies, Inc. (LPI) has finally acquired its long-awaited and much-needed LPI vehicle – a 2019 Ford Cargo Transit van. “Philanthropic donors have done it again,” said Jeff Friedman, founder and director of the Livingston-based charity. “Along with the steady flow of winter coats, hats, gloves and scarves, now they have funded a vehicle for Livingston Philanthropies, Inc. (LPI). The van became a reality because of the generosity of family giving funds, Livingston civic organizations, local businesses and individual contributions. It’s almost unbelievable!”
Friedman immediately put the van into service, driving from the dealership to its partner, the West Essex Tribune, to pick up donations.

Chrissy’s Column

Chrissy’s Column

In my family, I’m known as the “quirky” one. (I don’t kid myself; I know it’s just a nice way of saying the “weird” one.) In keeping with my reputation, I am the proud owner of what’s been deemed by my family as an officially weird Christmas tree.

It is unconventional, I grant you that. It’s basically a fake deciduous tree with whose branches have no leaves, but are adorned with tiny berries and mini globe lights.

It’s like no other Christmas tree I have ever seen, and when my husband Ray and I saw it in a store a few years ago, we knew we just had to have it.
