ShareFest Benefits District Schools

Six Topeka Public Schools are shining brighter this week, thanks to hundreds of volunteers participating in the annual ShareFest event. For the fifth year in a row, members of 14 area churches spent a Saturday morning painting railings, planting shrubs , trimming bushes and spreading wood chips under playground equipment. The schools benefiting from ShareFest were Bishop Elementary, McCarter Elementary, Meadows Elementary, Randolph Elementary, French Middle School, Robinson Middle School and Topeka High School. Joining the hundreds of church volunteers in ShareFest were many staff members from Topeka Public Schools.
