Come help us spread some Halloween fun! We need volunteers to assist with all aspects of the Great Waterfront Pumpkin Patch, where we will be giving away pumpkins to children. We'll need assistance with unloading all the pumpkins; help with booths, such as the entrance/exit, wristbands, photo booth, inflatables and craft zones. And, at the end of the day, we'll need help packing up and cleaning up.

Volunteers may sign up for a shift or come help for the day!

Volunteers will be required to provide vaccination verification or current negative covid test prior to serving. Face coverings are recommended.

Please contact Cheryl Wegner, Volunteer Coordinator: cheryl.wegner@sdcounty.ca.gov; 858-966-1335
