McKinley Elementary needs your help to run our 10th annual DogFest, a community fundraiser, dog show, and family fun event. The event will include dog competitions throughout the day, family activities, local vendors, fantastic food, a dog rescue zone and a fabulous silent auction. The event requires more than a hundred volunteers to run smoothly so we are seeking outside volunteers to help our huge crew of parent volunteers. Every penny raised will go to support academic and enrichment programs for more than 390 children at our small public school in the center of San Francisco.

Volunteers will help with any of a variety of tasks including running carnival games and the bouncy house, helping sell lunch and bake sale items, selling sno cones, cotton candy and popcorn, helping at the dog rescue center, merchandise sales, face painting and button making. You can also help us get setup in the morning or break everything down after the event.

Volunteers are welcome for the whole day or a portion of the event. Shifts generally run from 11-1:30 and 1:30-4, with check-in 15 minutes prior to your shift. Setup is from 8-11 (or whenever you can get there), and cleanup from 4-6.
