Purpose of The Harvest Drive
The Harvest Drive is a yearlong project that culminates in an
event that takes place at several public schools every Thanksgiving.
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 neighborhoods have held
drives and supplied the Harvest Drive with the non-perishable food
that is distributed to the families.
Families receive a complete Thanksgiving meal and a week's worth
of grocerie staples, as well as personal and household necessities
during Thanksgiving season.
The unique characteristic of the program is that in addition to
the business and corporate 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.
Rotary Clubs, community businesses, corporations, PTAs and
volunteer organizations have generously sponsored the Harvest
Drive byproviding money to purchase the perishable foods. High
school clubs collect large quantities of food obtained at local grocery
stores throughout the county. Some girl scout troops march
around their neighborhoods collecting food for this project.
Children Helping Children
The Harvest Drive incorporates all aspects of philanthropy by
promoting the concept
of children and adults
to offer needy families
in Broward County gifts
of food and other
necessities during the
and throughout the year.
Educating children and
creating a consciousness
about the needs of their
altruism and giving them
the opportunity to help
others are the cornerstone
of the Harvest Drive.
