PCL Performing Arts Center at the Presbyterian Church of Livingston


Talk about full circle.  Dave Rimelis began his life on Herbert Terrace in 1954 and attended Roosevelt/Monmouth Court, Heritage and Livingston High Schools.  Now, after performing at last year’s reincarnation of the Livingston Block Dance, Dave and his band returns to Livingston on Saturday, October 14th at 7:00pm when the Presbyterian Church of Livingston becomes the PCL Performing Arts Center for an evening of country, bluegrass & Cajun tunes.

Who We Are

As the after-effects of the pandemic and crippling inflation continue to economically devastate families living below the poverty line, Livingston Philanthropies, Inc. (LPI) is privileged to announce our season twelve. LPI’s mission is to “provide for the homeless, profoundly poor & disenfranchised.”

LPI completely reinvented in 2022-2023 to accommodate ever-expanding needs of the homeless and families who just can’t make it all happen for their kids…or themselves.

LPI is a grass roots, community giving organization. Through generous contributions from corporations, family giving funds, businesses and individuals, LPI has purchased and distributed thousands of basic life items including warm coats, gloves, scarves, hats, toiletries gift bags, cosmetics gift bags, diapers, women’s sanitary products, family clothing and more to several founding Newark distribution partners.

We enjoy a strong track-record of service. LPI added fresh produce and fruit to our universe, too, purchasing $1,000-$2,000 of product each month for a Newark, New Jersey monthly Free Grocery Giveaway event.

Sadly, folks down on their luck que-up all the way down the block to receive basic sustenance, diapers and other desperately needed products.

Livingston Philanthropies, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Contributions are tax-deductible.


We are proudly non-profit, non-corporate and non-compromised. People like you help us provide for the homeless​.

We rely on donations to carry out our mission to provide for the homeless, profoundly poor & disenfranchised​.
