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!
