Sharefest develops comprehensive programs and services that strengthen communities and meet the needs in the lives of children and families. It is essential that the community creatively collaborate together to meet the needs in the lives of these children and their families.
Providing opportunities for youth, families, businesses, churches and other local entities to invest themselves into their community is vital. Sharefest is the catalyst for creating these opportunities. To date, Sharefest has provided opportunities for over 50,000 volunteers to complete tangible projects throughout their community at no cost to the recipients. Approximately, $10 million worth of improvements have been made through collaborating together during the annual Sharefest workdays.
