Where can we volunteer for Valentine's Day in SF?

I'm looking for a one-off volunteering opportunity in San Francisco on V-Day evening. Why is this so hard to find? Do they just think no one will want to volunteer that night?

I've checked all the places I can think of -- Bay Area charity event calendars, OneBrick, VolunteerMatch, various charities and parks. The only thing I've turned up is some charity indie film festival, and a Parks Conservancy opportunity from 1-4 pm, but that would require taking off work. I checked Project Open Hand, but they require a 6 month commitment.
Are there any other soup kitchens, community gardens, shelters or any other type of nonprofit in the city that anyone knows of, that would be open to a couple volunteering that night (say, past 5pm) without a huge amount of training or additional commitment?
I was thinking it would be a fun thing to do together for Valentine's, and better than dinner, while helping some good cause. Wasn't expecting it to be quite so difficult to find anything. Should we volunteer another time and just resign ourselves to just seeing a movie or something that evening?
