Misericordia Benefit 2018 Volunteers

58th Annual MFA Benefit Volunteers

This will be the 5th year that SignUpGenius (SUG) will be the main tool used to sign up volunteers.   SUG is easy to use and will help Misericordia move forward with managing so many volunteers. VOLUNTEERS MUST BE AT LEAST 16 YEARS OLD. We appreciate your help.

PLEASE NOTE COLLECTION SUNDAY IS ADDED TO SIGN UP GENIUS - APRIL 15TH

Please sign up early since many positions fill quickly. On the weekend of the event, be sure to check in at the volunteer Kiosk before each shift to see who you will report to. At the Kiosk you will receive a name tag. Name tags will be printed from the volunteers who have used SUG to sign up. 

If you volunteer for the final shift from 9:00 - 11:00 you will be asked to stay until your area is broken down and ready to be loaded on the truck.

If you need to cancel less than 1 month prior to the event, please find a substitute, remove your name from SUG and have your substitute add their name to SUG. ALL COMMITTEE CHAIRS and committee members must sign up for only the shifts that they intend to fully participate in (as opposed to supervise). Please feel free to contact us if there are any questions. Thank you. Sue and Rick Ziesemer
