Fighting for a Clean Safe and Fun Park

Dolores Park Works Summer Celebration is today, Saturday and we have only few tickets remaining. Tickets will be available on-line till noon today. The remaining tickets can be purchased at the door as space allows. So far, our campaign has raised $2,700 towards our goal $3,000.

All money raised goes to our Dolores volunteer clean ups, the “Respect the Park” campaign and advocacy for a Safe, Clean and Fun Dolores Park. All contributions are tax-deductible. Your money supports:

Park Clean Ups – In 2013, we organized and hosted 12 volunteer lead clean ups of Dolores Park. That’s 430 hours of donated park maintenance. This season we are planning even more clean up events. With your help, we are launching a regular monthly Dolores Park volunteer day and will continue to reach out to local businesses, schools and social organizations for their invaluable help.

Park Advocacy – We advocated and petitioned for the first semi-permanent port-o-potties to help supplement the failing toilets of Dolores back in 2009. And we will be there when we cut the ribbon on the two new high-capacity restrooms in 2015. We have worked with SF Rec and Park from the inception of the Dolores renovation project and we will continue to monitor and steward Dolores even after the ribbon cutting on our new park.
