Livingston Philanthropies Update: Cases of Donations for the Homeless Are Shipping Thanks to Livingston Residents

Article Image Alt Text

Livingston Philanthropies, Inc. (LPI) quickly re-invented itself to service regular distribution associates during the pandemic, noted founder and director Jeff Friedman. “Through the continued generosity of Livingston residents, LPI had just enough funding this week to purchase a full pallet of bottled waters to provide for the homeless and profoundly poor.”
He expressed “special thanks to Mike, owner of National Spring Water in Haledon, for splitting one pallet, his minimum order, into two parts, for delivery to two food pantries/soup kitchens. He was pleased to help folks in such dire need. I hope to call Mike again soon with another order!”
Splitting 2,016 bottles on the pallet, the Bessie Green Community and the Apostles’ House, both in Newark, each received 1,008 individual bottles of spring water to distribute to those out on the streets, in shelters, or staying in other situations, Friedman explained.

Food, Not Lawns: Farmer Advocates for Gardening

Farmer and former Livingston resident Andy Goldman, who has temporarily returned to his hometown in between jobs on farms in upstate New York and eastern Pennsylvania, has been creating a garden for his mom at her home on North Baums Court. He advocates gardening as a perfect solution to the problem of obtaining fresh vegetables in a time of pandemic. “With social distancing becoming the new norm, a trip to the supermarket for fresh fruits and vegetables might make you hesitate,” he says. “But, Livingston’s climate makes for productive gardens that can give you a family’s worth of salads, vegetables, herbs, and much more. All you need is a portion of your yard, sunlight, water, and most of all, good soil.”

Soil, Not “Dirt”
