DUBUQUE (KWWL) -
The second annual Volunteerfest was held Friday evening in Dubuque.
Different organization including the Dubuque Circles Initiative, Operation: New View, and Project Concern were all a part of this years festival. Each of these organizations works to help the economically disadvantaged. The goal of Volunteerfest is to connect volunteers in the Dubuque area to each of those organizations. Organizers also hope the festival allows others to learn more about each organization.
Zachary Shay is an Americorps VISTA volunteer who is working with the Circles Initiative. "It's kind of a two fold. We want people to know what these organizations do. But it is also important for people to understand what the programs in the community are doing and let them know how to get involved," Shay said.
