“Help Is Needed Now:” Livingston Philanthropies Makes Urgent Appeal

Article Image Alt Text

Livingston Philanthropies Inc. (LPI) has issued an emergency appeal this week. Founder and director Jeff Friedman said, “We are reaching out for immediate help. The pandemic is causing massive and increasing homelessness, extreme poverty and deadly despair just minutes away from Livingston.”
Long food lines have popped up all over Newark, he said. “Parents living below the poverty line find themselves waiting, each day, to feed their families adequate or sometimes Spartan meals. Then, it’s on to the next food pantry for yet another queue.”
Through Livingston Philanthropies, which is now in its tenth season of operation in town, Livingston residents can reach out immediately to help.
“Here’s how to help right now,” Friedman said. “You can send a tax-deductible contribution to LPI, P.O. Box 247, Livingston, NJ 07039 or go to paypal.me/lpinj to empower LPI to purchase food, toiletries, diapers, coats, gloves, scarves, hats, masks and more.
