The Harvest Drive is a yearlong project that culminates 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.
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.
There are two main Harvest Drive programs we support, the Food Drive and the Boutique. Both take place at Western High. Adult and Student volunteers are needed for both of these important activities.
