Volunteer Sign-Up Begins Today

During the 2014 season, each member is required to volunteer for one shift at the pick up location. 

The shifts are 11am-1pm and 1-3pm on Fridays, June 13 through November 21.

Please note that the July 4 pickup has been moved up to Wednesday, July 2.

There will be two volunteers and at least one of the organizers at each shift.

We are using an interface called VolunteerSpot for signups.

Today, Saturday, May 24, you will receive an email from VolunteerSpot with instructions and a hyperlink which will enable you to sign up in three easy steps. Or you can click here to go directly to our sign up.

Some things to remember:

* Sign ups are on the first come first served basis.
* Volunteer names are visible on the sign up.
* WITHIN AN HOUR after signing up,  you will receive a confirmation email, from which you can update your calendars on your computers and/or smart devices with one click.

We will send you a reminder at the beginning of the week and the day before you are scheduled to volunteer. You can also download a VolunteerSpot mobile app if you like, although it is not necessary.

Nino Badridze is our Volunteer Coordinator. Please feel free to contact her with any questions about volunteering or the sign up process. Please note she has a different volunteer email address for volunteering. (volunteerffs at, 973-752-6538)

**VolunteerSpot does not share your email address with anyone. If you prefer not to use your email address, email Nino and she will imput manually.

Also, if you need to change your shift, please contact Nino at your earliest convenience. She will do her best to find you another suitable shift. 

Many thanks for your participation and help in running things smoothly!  And thanks to Nino for taking on this huge task!

Have a great Memorial Day Weekend.

All the best,

Melissa & Wendy
