VOLUNTEER FOR SUPERHEROES FOR HOSPICE IN NJ
AMBER LOVE 16-SEP-2015 Greetings, my fellow New Jersey Nerds! I’m here to tell you about a way you can use your time for good within the comics industry. There’s too much negative garbage going viral in our business and fandom. Help take it back by doing things that make our community a better place.
One such thing you can do is help the Superheroes for Hospice team with sorting and filing the comics people donate to get ready for the big November sale. I’ve never helped sort before, but this is where I donate all my comics. It’s a tax write off too if that matters to you. Because of the volume and time management needed, the founder, Spiro Ballas has created shifts for volunteers to help with this massive undertaking. You have to register with him so he can put you on the schedule.
FROM THE PAGE OF SPIRO BALLAS:
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED for…
Superheroes For Hospice Sorting Dates:
September 18 (Friday), 20 (Sunday) & 21 (Monday-1st shift only)
September 26 (Saturday) & 27 (Sunday)
October 16 (Friday), 18 (Sunday) & 19 (Monday-1st shift only)
October 24 (Saturday), 25 (Sunday) & 26 (Monday-1st shift only)
These are the dates when we will sort the new donations of comic books, to get ready for the next Superheroes For Hospice Charity Comic Book Sale (which will be Saturday, November 7th).
On most of the dates there will be two shifts: 1) – 10am to 1pm, and 2)- 2pm to 5pm.
Those who stay for the whole shift will be treated to a pizza lunch.
These sorts take place at the same place as our sales: 95 Old Short Hills Road, West Orange, NJ 07052.
If you need a weekend drop-off time to make a comic book donation, those would be good dates.
YOU MUST REGISTER IN ADVANCE, either by email [ SBallas@BarnabasHealth.org ] or by calling [973-322-4866]. Let me know your name and what shift you want to help at.
We do not sell comics or place items aside during these sorts, however…
Those who volunteer for 4 shifts will be allowed to shop early (9:30am start, instead of the normal 10am start for everyone else) at the Nov. 7th sale.
