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 in 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
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.
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 in our Broward County
