Rockford Sharefest returns for the 13th year

ROCKFORD, Ill (WIFR) --- With hope and a helping hand, volunteers tackled the first project of this year's Rockford Sharefest.

For the 13th year, Sharefest is working toward enhancing spaces like the YMCA Children's learning center.

"We are painting six classrooms and two officers and all the hallways. Just giving a real fresh look to the whole entire facility," says site leader, Julie Huber.

With three volunteer shifts daily, the YMCA center will be ready in the span of four days. The next project the volunteers will take on is Davis Park.
