St. Mary's Super Citrus Saturday - East Valley Location

  • Jan 26, 2013 · 9:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Hi Everyone!

It's citrus gleaning season for St. Mary's Food Bank. St. Mary's has revamped their gleaning program and hired professional gleaners. They need our assistance to collect the citrus being dropped off from the public. Space is limited and we are responsible for supplying the volunteers at this location so please see below for attendance policy.

Location: Shepherd of the Hills Congregation, 5524 East Lafayette Boulevard, Phx AZ 85018 (56th Street/Lafayette Boulevard)

Time: 9 am - 2 pm.

Minimum Age: 12 with a parent or guardian

Refresments: Water will be provided; however, we are responsible for bringing our own snacks

If you have not filled out a volunteer release form for St. Mary's Food Bank please download and do so HERE and bring with you. They will have forms onsite.

Dress appropriately. It will start out being cool, so dressing in layers would be suggested. Bring gloves if you have them.

ATTENDANCE: Please kindly update your RSVP if you are unable to make the event. This allows other volunteers the opportunity to participate and also allows us to keep our commitments to best assist St. Mary's. Please see PP's Attendance Policy below.

Phoenix Philanthropists 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 as much prior notice as possible, but at a minimum of 48 hours 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 MeetUp. 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

Thanks for all you do!

    Everyone,

    The event is Rain or Shine. There will be pop up tents (thanks Lori, for keeping people updated!) if you can not make the event due to rain, please change your RSVP and let me know ASAP. It would be preferred if you can text or call - my number is 7345318615. Please know that St. Mary's IS expecting 11 people at this site as we've already RSVP'd out final numbers to them, so please try to make it out!

    For those of us who are not able to make it if it is cold and raining - who should we let know? We are getting over colds in our house so being out in the rain for 5 hours is not going to be possible.

    Tod, the St. Mary's Lead noted that this is a "Rain or Shine" event on the other St. Mary's Super Citrus Saturday location's posting. He also noted there will be some pop-up tents to help keep us dry, but wear a raincoat if you have one.

    It looks like it's definitely a big chance of rain. Will someone come on here to post if/when the event is canceled?

      I believe we will not be affected by the rain, but I'll touch base with St. Mary's and keep everyone updated!
