Article Image Alt Text

National Night Out is far from the only community event in which the police department has participated in this summer.

Twice last month, the Livingston Municipal Alliance Committee, in partnership with the Livingston Community Policing division, have hosted special events that sought to bring the community together for some fun and a little information.

Both took place at the Haines pool, on July 18 and 25, and were open to all, not just to members of the pool.

Article Image Alt Text

“If You See Something, Buy Something:”

Livingston Philanthropies, Inc. (LPI), Livingston’s local non-profit organization, has a mission of “providing for the poor, homeless, and disenfranchised,” and LPI founder and director Jeff Friedman has urged contributors to take advantage of summer sales for the charity’s “Personal Shopping for the Homeless” initiative.

“This time of year, we are exposed to a barrage of sale ads on a daily basis,” said Friedman. “Summer close-out sales, back-to-school bargains, online special offers, two-for-one purchases, email specials, newspaper pull-out sections, and so much more. These wonderful sale opportunities exist right now both in stores and online. That’s why LPI is asking Livingston residents to join our ‘Personal Shopping for the Homeless’efforts while sale opportunities are so rampant.”
