Youth Education Hot Dog Sales
Our Hot Dog Sales are not just about fundraising. As a young man, store owner and General Manager Kevin Jenkins learned the value of hard work and the feelings of success and self-worth that came with earning money to fund his extracurricular activities. These experiences as a young man have led to his success today. Through his support of the Hot Dog Sales Program here at McKinleyville Ace Home & Garden Center, he hopes to give youth groups today that same experience.
Youth groups that participate in our hot dog sale program are required to have an adult present, but are run by the youth themselves as much as possible. This gives them the opportunity to learn a variety of skills including cash handling and customer service, and that feeling of satisfaction at seeing their work pay off at the end of the weekend.
How to Sign Up
Hot Dog sales are scheduled as a two-day weekend event, Saturday and Sunday from 11 to 4. Hot Dog Sales generally run from May through September and are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Interested organizations may pick up a packet and return it to the store for processing.
