Nakayoshi volunteering event at the Nihonmachi Street Fair!

For those of you who wanted to see more opportunities to volunteer at community events, here's Nakayoshi's first volunteer event!

Thanks to Lenna Onishi at the Japanese Community Youth Council (JCYC), we've been asked to help out in the children's area during the Nihonmachi Street Fair in Japantown the weekend of August 9th and 10th. Let us know at nakayoshi.ncwnp@gmail.com if you can come out to volunteer at one of the shifts. More details are below:

35th Annual Nihonmachi Street Fair
On August 9 & 10, the Nihonmachi Street Fair will take place in San Francisco's Japantown! Celebrating its 35th year, the first Nihonmachi Street Fair was a meeting ground for Asian American youth to address issues that were taking place in SF Japantown at that time. Today, the event is an opportunity for community groups, artisans, and local artists to come together to celebrate diversity and culture.

This year, the Nihonmachi Street Fair will run from 12noon - 6pm.
We are currently looking for volunteers to work in the Children's Village area of the event! Volunteers are needed on both Saturday (August 9) & Sunday (August 10)!
Volunteer shifts:
Shift 1: 9am -12 noon (set-up)
Shift 2: 12noon-3pm
Shift 3: 3-6pm

Volunteers will be asked to monitor game & crafts booths.
If you are interested in volunteering or would like more information, please contact 415 202 7909 or info@jcyc.org. Your help is greatly appreciated!

As always, we'd love to see you as well as some new faces come out to lend a hand. Let us know if you're coming out!
