Anna Yin just started volunteering this year but has already made a huge impact with Sunday Streets. Along with volunteering at the Great Highway, Richmond, Mission, and Western Addition events she has also been helping us get ready for events at our monthly volunteer movie nights. Here’s what she has to say about her volunteer experiences!
What motivated you to volunteer at Sunday Streets?
Last year I had a blast attending the Bayview/Dogpatch Sunday Streets, which was in my neighborhood. People at the information booth told me about the great opportunities to volunteer for a good cause. I completely agree and this is what motivated me. Along with my experience volunteering at the info booth, I have helped with outreach and attended a volunteer movie night to prepare material for Sunday Streets events. I have also signed up for mystery shift that allows me to sub in positions that need most help.
What do you enjoy most at Sunday Streets?
I enjoy working with other volunteers, team captains and the organizers. I also have a great time socializing with people who attend the event. I have fun before and after my shift. It’s very rewarding experience for me.
What is your favorite Sunday Streets event location and why?
My favorite Sunday Streets event is the one close to my neighborhood, Bayview/Dogpatch Sunday Streets. I like seeing my neighbors and friends enjoying the community event. There are many young and old people who live in my neighborhood, along with pets. When Sunday Streets blocks car access, it’s perfect for people to ride their bikes, roller skate and it’s a very pet friendly event. It’s a great way for people and community businesses to connect with one another.
