THANKSforGIVING
Harvest Drive remains a 100% volunteer charity, staffed by  students, school administrators, teachers, community sponsors and "worker bees".
Purpose of The Harvest Drive
The Harvest Drive is a yearlong project that culminates
events that take place at several public schools every
Thanksgiving. Families receive a complete Thanksgiving
meal and a week's worth of grocery staples, as well as
personal and household necessities during Thanksgiving
season.

Fundraising efforts and collections are under way
throughout the fall season. In years past, student from
over 150 public and private schools, as well as  churches,
temples and many other community organizations have
held drives and supplied the Harvest Drive with the
non-perishable food that is distributed to our families.

The unique characteristic of the program is that in
addition to the business and community donations,
children are at the helm of all collections. In addition to
helping others,
the purpose of the Harvest Drive is to
teach children at an early age that their contributions
can make a difference in the lives of others, by
facilitating their direct participation in the project.
High school clubs fundraise and collect large quantities of
food obtained at local grocery stores throughout the
County. Middle and elementary school students collect
food and funds throughout their classrooms and other
school wide activities.

Civic clubs, local businesses, corporations, volunteer
organizations and PTAs have generously sponsored the
Harvest Drive by providing money to purchase the
perishable foods.

Children Helping Children
Educating children and creating a consciousness about
the needs of their community; promoting altruism and
giving them the opportunity to help others are the
cornerstone of the Harvest Drive. Harvest Drive believes
in encouraging the concept of children and adults working
hand-in-hand to assist families in Broward County with
gifts of food and other necessities during the
Thanksgiving holidays and throughout the year.
Please join us in our efforts to stamp out hunger our
Broward County communities!
