Harvest Drive remains a 100% volunteer charity,
staffed by students, school administrators,teachers,
community sponsors and "worker bees".
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
Purpose of The Harvest Drive
The Harvest Drive is a yearlong multi-faceted program. Our
largest project takes place each November where more than 2300
families receive a week’s worth of groceries and household
items as well as the fixings for a complete Thanksgiving meal.
More than 500 families also have free access to gently used
clothing, shoes, toys, books and household items. Distribution
occurs at more than 15 Broward County middle and high schools.
Fundraising efforts and collections are under way throughout
the fall season. In years past, student from over 180 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.
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.
