It’s “Toiletries and Cosmetics Season” At Livingston Philanthropies, Inc.

Livingston Philanthropies, Inc. (LPI), is requesting hotel-size toiletries and new cosmetics for distribution to homeless individuals who do not have financial access to the basics of personal hygiene. “As vacation season approaches, many residents will be staying at hotels and resorts,” noted LPI founder and director Jeff Friedman. “It’s been my experience that lots of unused items are readily available to bring home for the ‘poor, homeless, and disenfranchised.’ It’s fun, too!” Friedman added that, “comments like ‘I really need this!’ ‘Thanks for taking care of us,’ ‘This is really for me?’ and ‘God bless You’ are frequent reactions from those who receive toiletries and cosmetics from LPI. And this is all because of the generosity of our Livingston friends and neighbors.” Friedman continued, “All of us try to look our best, including the homeless and the profoundly poor. That’s why new cosmetics, samples and cosmetic gift bags, are especially appreciated by women of all ages.
