The Livingston Committee for Diversity invites the community to commemorate the ideals of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on Jan. 20 with a day of service.
The committee will hold service projects in the Livingston High School in the cafeteria from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and provide an opportunity for the community to follow the example of Dr. King to help those who are less fortunate than we.
Among the participants will be Grace Lutheran Church providing supplies for personal hygiene to be packed and distributed to homeless and immigrant refugees for Lutheran Service Ministries in the Trenton area.
Girl Scouts will be doing a variety of projects for both local information and for other areas in the state.
Junior Scout Troop 20384 is sponsoring a learning experience on anti-bullying., Shasa Weber is working on her Silver Scout Award doing a project on composting.
Troop 20215 is going to make “origami” tray favors to be given to residents of the Inglemoor Center and those served by meals on wheels.
Troop 20018 will be running a Color-A-Smile talge and decorating bags for CHOW.
Troop 20302 will be holding a collection for the Mt Pleasant Animal Shelter. (items needed are listed on the Mt. Pleasant Animal Shelter website).
Burnet Hill Elementary School will have a truck located in the parking lot near the cafeteria to collect gently used, no longer desired bicycles to be donated to the Boys and Girls Clubs in Newark. The New Jersey Bike exchange reconditions the bikes so they are ready for their new owners.
Boxes and bags will be provided to collect canned goods and nonperishable foods to be donated to CHOW. The committee will have a box for old eye-glasses that are no longer used to be given to the Lions Club for distribution to those who can use them.
