  • Maria H.

    Hi everyone. We are short of volunteers, so I encourage everyone to please be there. We NEED YOU.
    We are counting on everyone who RSVPd, and finding volunteers to replace cancellations is not easy the night before a 7am event.
    The organizer said there will be coffee and bagels for the volunteers in the morning, and we will have our group photo taken before 8am. I have your tshirts, so please look for me at the volunteer check in tent. This will be my last posting for tonight, so if you have questions, please call me at 201.779.8060.

    Need your help to also find more volunteers. Please invite your family/friends to help out - even if they don't get to send me their info tonight, they can just proceed to the volunteer check in tent and look for me.

    Thank you - thank you - thank you! See you there bright and early!

    March 1, 2013

    How young can you volunteer. I have a friend who wants to volunteer, but wonders if her volunteer can volunteer as well. He's 6 years old.

    February 25, 2013

    • Maria H.

      Hi Erica. We prefer adult volunteers that require little to no supervision. If the 6 year old child wants to come along, he will have to be with his guardian at all times.
