  • Enter data into our volunteer database
  • Filing and a variety of other administrative projects

Cook A Meal - Here is an opportunity to share that favorite recipe and bless the site and team leaders with a meal. In between shifts the site and team leaders take a well deserved break, while planning for the next shift. Sign up to provide either lunch or dinner for 10-15 people. We will provide the paper products and beverages.



Who is invited to volunteer?

Anyone and everyone, ages 12 and older!  Invite your friends, family, neighbors and co-workers to get involved and serve alongside you. Businesses and organizations from all over the city are joining forces this summer to bring help and hope.

Can children participate?

Due to safety reasons, volunteers must be at least 12 years of age to participate.  Students ages 12-15 must be accompanied by an adult 18 or older. All minors must have a waiver completed by a parent or guardian. 

Is there a release form I need to sign?

Yes, click here for the adult release form for Rockford Sharefest and click here for the City of Rockford release. Both are needed.

Click here for the minor release form for ages 12 - 17 to be completed and signed by parent or guardian

Will supplies be provided?

Everything you need will be provided. No need to bring your own tools or supplies. 

Will food be provided?

Water and snacks will be provided for volunteers. Sharefest will break for lunch at noon and dinner at 5:00 p.m. so volunteers can pursue their own meal plans.

Where should I go when I arrive?

Look for the Sharefest signs and our friendly hospitality teams will point you in the right direction.

What should I wear?

Each volunteer will be provided a Sharefest 2015 t-shirt. Wear comfortable clothing and remember you may get paint on you. Please wear closed toe shoes for your own safety.
