Superheroes Needed at St. Mary's!

Calling all Superheroes!

Philanthropolis is under attack! Tumulus The Reclamator and Laggard The Decorrugator have been seen wreaking havoc just outside the city, and fears are that they are heading straight for what would be their most calamitous conquest ever, the world's premiere and model food bank--St. Mary's!  Fantastic employees alone are no match for Tumulus's destructive power to turn much-needed, healthy food into mounds of inedible waste, and Laggard's unrelenting cardboard fiber consumption, bringing emergency food box production to a screeching halt! Superheroes are perilously needed!

Please answer the Commissioner's call for Philanthropolis's First Superhero Alliance, and bring your powers to join the fight against the evil supervillains!  Together, we will powerfully and effectively sort food and pack emergency food boxes, protecting St. Mary's mission to alleviate hunger through the gathering and distribution of food while encouraging self-sufficiency, collaboration, advocacy and education; and, thereby, rendering these nefarious villains powerless. St. Mary's will provide superhero hydration and delicious fuel (snacks).

Stealth Uniforms: Superheroes may don their full gear, or, to confuse the villains, can leave their capes and uniforms at home, and wear a t-shirt (no tank tops or sleeveless shirts) of the superhero they most admire. And remember, you can't safely and effectively fight supervillains without closed-toed shoes!

Li'l Superheroes: This is a great battle for li'l superheroes-in-training!  Li'l superheroes must have been in training on Earth for at least 12 years, and those in Earth training for 12-15 years must be accompanied by a big (adult) superhero.

Superhero Application & Release Form: Though you've likely used those amazing superpowers elsewhere to make a difference in our community, if this is your first time at St. Mary's, please print, complete and bring this St. Mary's Release Form with you to this battle.

Parking: Follow the signs to park in the large, stealth volunteer lot in the back. Safely lock-up valuables, as they can't be brought into the battleground.

Crusader Check-in: Walk up the large fortified ramp to enter through the roll-up door (it opens automatically for all superheroes). The Philanthropolis Commissioner, or one of his deputies, will be just inside the door to sign you in at 6 p.m.

Extra Artillery: Bring canned and boxed non-perishable foods to help win the fight!




Attendance Policy: We understand that plans change and emergencies come up. If you RSVP YES, but can no longer attend, PLEASE change your RSVP ASAP. Our charity partners rely on us to attend when we say we will and our attendance policy is intended to ensure we can meet our charity partners' expectations. Please give a minimum of 1 day's notice for this event before canceling. No Call/No Shows will be recorded, and after 3 No Call No Shows/month or 6 No Call No Shows/year, you will be removed from the Phoenix Philanthropists. Please understand this policy is not intended to penalize our Philanthropists, but to ensure we maintain good relationships with our charity partners and can give the most back to our community.

      Even Superheroes' stealth vehicles break down. Hope it's an easy and inexpensive fix, not fraught by the usual villains. Sorry you can't join us tonight, but hope to see you showin' off your superpowers in Philanthropolis soon!

    Happy Monday, Superheroes! Our big battle against the supervillains is just over 24 hours away! We'll show those villains they can't stop thousands of emergency food boxes from getting to those in need when St. Mary's has the backing of Philanthropolis' Superheroes! If for any reason you can't make it, don't worry, we still have other Superheroes waiting to join in--but PLEASE be sure to change your RSVP to "No" so those who are waiting have time to warm up their superpowers. Thanks for being Super!

    Hello, Superheroes! Thank you for signing up to fight the supervillains and ensure St. Mary's continues to help as many people in need as possible. If this battle will be the first time you use your superpowers at St. Mary's, or if last time you left your release form in your other cape, please go to the "St. Mary's Release Form" link, just added on this event posting under the "Superhero Application & Release Form" heading. Then, please print, complete, and bring it with you on Tuesday! Have an epic time taking down Tumulus & Laggard! Thank you, in advance, for saving the world, Superheroes!
