We’re only two days into the 2016 but — in what may prove to be one of the weirdest stories of the year — Boston Globe reporters and editors are being asked to volunteer to help deliver the Sunday Globe to Newton residents tomorrow, the Boston Business Journal reports.
Steeves’ email directed all volunteers to meet at 15 Riverdale Avenue in Newton at 12 a.m. Sunday to help deliver that morning’s paper. He cited a particular need for delivery support in the Newton area.
“Globe employees will need to be two per car. Please have proof of driver’s license and registration,” Steeves wrote. He said each team will be given a specific newspaper route and delivery instructions. He also urged them to come equipped with the basic tools of the trade.
