Harvest Festival is an annual celebration event occurring in Britain normally near the full moon closest to the Autumn Equinox (usually towards the end of September). Many schools, churches and community groups get together to celebrate this event by singing and praying whilst gathering food that is then distributed amongst those who need it around the community including those in poverty or local charities.
As well as Harvest Festival there are many other ways your school and students can get involved in our work:
· Run school awareness campaigns and fundraising
· Assemblies – we can deliver assemblies and help educate children on homelessness
· Help us educate young people on what to do if they are worried about a Rough Sleeper or vulnerable person
· Could your school support us with World Homelessness Day each year?
· Help us reach out to local communities for donations and support
· Student involvement days and junior Board opportunities
