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!
