As a kid, did you ever spend weekends in Colorado helping out your Grandma and Grandpa with chores around the house? Maybe you helped cut the grass, clean up the yard, or maybe you just helped Grandma with something heavy in the pantry?

Each spring in the Grand Valley, we have a chance to help out members of the community who may have some tasks they are unable to do themselves. Sometimes elderly residents are unable to physically do a job around the house, and sometimes the cost of hiring someone to do the work is just too expensive. The ShareFest event helps out these valuable members of our community.

What is Sharefest Weekend in Western Colorado?

ShareFest is a volunteer weekend in Grand Junction that brings people together to help members of our community who need assistance with household projects and upkeep. NBC11 reports that ShareFest 2022 returns to Western Colorado from April 30th to May 1st, 2022.

Over the scheduled weekend, volunteers can sign up to participate in ShareFest by helping with tasks like washing windows, getting swamp coolers ready for the season, and helping to rake yards and collect weeds. Remember, volunteers will be sent to residents who submitted a valid request for help. Let's answer the call.
