ShareFest brings out thousands

Posted: Updated:

3,000 people and 40 churches across the Tri-Cities start the weekend by volunteering for this year's ShareFest.

This year ShareFest consists of a record breaking 200 projects around the Tri-Cities ranging from planting trees at schools to sewing up ragged prison uniforms.
With all of the volunteers signing up this year the great variety of projects draws their interest, but the main reason most say they participate is to make a difference.  

"Instead of complaining and saying I'm so tired, my back's hurting, I'm thinking you know, I'm doing this is for a good cause," volunteer Kathy Corrsman said.

"Every year you can see every area that we impact. It gets better each year," volunteer James Timmons said.  

ShareFest continues tomorrow when each church is expected to donate food for a local food bank. Many are also donating shoes for Haiti. as well as donating money to help save the Juvenile Drug Court.
