Rockford, Ill (WIFR) -- Rockford Sharefest announced its projects for this coming summer and the organization is taking on the first phase of renovations at Davis Park and the YMCA Children's Learning Center.
Sharefest returns to Rockford June 7-15 with hundreds of volunteers helping to make the city a more beautiful place. Over the last 12 years, schools, parks and downtown have been refurbished and the two locations for this year’s projects will be no different.
"We've branded the whole year as future so bright, and the way you create a bright future is you build into kids and you build into young families who are trying to make ends meet and establish a brighter future for themselves," said Sharefest Director Creig Day.
