Walking the Walk

When it comes to helping others, it is easy to think that you want to do something. It is also easy to say that you are going to do something. It is, however, often hard to actually make things happen, and even harder still to make sure that the help is actually helping. A group of Livingston residents, now known as Livingston Neighbors Helping Neighbors (LNHN), took their thoughts and talk to another level by creating an organization specifically to assist residents in times of extreme need. LNHN is, as they say, “walking the walk.” We encourage Livingston residents to support this new and worthy effort.
