You Can Host an Event
Each year, hundreds of North Shore residents bring their energy, creativity and passion to become part of Harvest Project’s network of support. We look to individuals, teams, schools and organizations to bring out the best of the community as we reach out to those needing a ‘hand-up’. Find out how you or your group can organize a special event here. If you’re part of a school or community organization, here are some ideas to explore:
Involve Your School
Thank you for your interest in Harvest Project. We value our partnerships with schools across the North Shore. We look forward to working with you to provide support and the best outcomes for everyone who participates. Your school can give to the community while students learn more about their neighbours, current social issues and the benefits of working together.
What your school can do:
Run a food drive: Students can organize a drive, collecting non-perishable grocery items for our grocery depot and food hampers.
Host a fund-raiser: Create an event that involves students and the community to contribute cash. To organize and run an event, check out our partner 2M events.
Select Harvest Project as your charity of choice for the Youth in Philanthropy Initiative (YPI): Choose to report on Harvest Project and upon winning the competition, your school will gain positive recognition and Harvest Project could win $5000.
Involve Your Organization
We look to partner with community organizations. We offer a number of ways that you can become involved to support those in need. Please consider working with Harvest Project as your organization reaches out to the community.
How you can work with Harvest Project:
Regular giving to Harvest Project: Monthly or periodic giving provides needed support for our work in the community. It’s a cost-effective method to support programs that benefit your neighbours and it’s one that brings members of your team together around a common cause.
Host an event that will raise awareness and money for Harvest Project. For example, you can invite a Harvest Project staff member to your site or have a Harvest Project information booth run by our staff and volunteers during a special event.
