  • COLLABORATE WITH SHAREFEST AND HELP US DO MORE - Thank you for volunteering with Sharefest! It is only through your efforts we are able to give back to our community. In order to offset some of Sharefest’s costs, we ask every volunteer to donate $10 towards our Workday. These funds help us do more in the community and offset the various costs (t-shirts, lunches, supplies, etc.). If you are unable to donate, please know that we are very grateful for the time you are able to give. If you are able to donate more than $10, we would love that as well! Thank you! http://www.sharefestinc.org/donate/
