Celebrate Black History Month

We are currently in the midst of Black History Month, an annual observance each February. This year’s remembrance of the people and events of Black history feels particularly poignant, as this is the first one following the deaths of Breonna Taylor and George Floyd, and the Black Lives Matter protests that followed in the summer of 2020 and beyond.

‘Personal Shopping for Homeless’ Grows During COVID; LPI Partners Work Together on Major Food Distribution

Article Image Alt Text

Livingston Philanthropies, Inc. (LPI), the charity founded by Living-ston resident Jeff Friedman to assist the “homeless, profoundly poor and disenfranchised” of Essex County, has been expanding its “Personal Shopping for the Homeless” initiative to meet the increasing need faced during the pandemic.
The initiative has grown thanks in large part to LPI’s partners, noted Friedman. These include the Livingston Lions Club, which, in association with Lions Clubs International, recently worked with LPI to deliver over 200 boxes of refrigerated food to one of LPI’s long-time distribution partners, the Bessie Green Community (BGC) in Newark. Of that shipment, 32 pound boxes were immediately distributed to multiple Newark agencies serving the homeless, poor, and at-risk families at the BGC. “You made a difference for many seniors and families,” said Brenda Scott, executive director of the BGC. “God bless you all.”

Waiting “On Deck”

Last week, in a TV interview, Governor Phil Murphy indicated that teachers were “on deck” to be eligible for the COVID-19 vaccinations. Teachers are among the non-healthcare essential workers who were categorized into the 1B section of vaccination eligibility, only to have other categories ranked behind them hear their name called first, including millions of smokers. They’ve since been waiting for their turn, wondering when they would be able to teach inside their classroom with less fear of serious illness.

Mayor Shawn Klein, Deputy Mayor Ed Meinhardt, and the rest of the Township Council say they have been advocating at every level of government for teachers to be next to receive their vaccinations. Recent confirmation that teachers will, in fact, be next, is certainly great to hear. Of course, we have no idea when “next” will be. Will they be able to receive a dose in a matter of weeks or months?
