Harvest Of Love

Every year Coronado High School hosts a canned food and money drive for the community, as well as the Coronado families in need of a Thanksgiving meal. The goal of the drive, Harvest of Love, is to provide Coronado families with food and essentials over the Thanksgiving break. Abby Gerber, the student body president, describes Harvest of Love as the, “[collection of] food for families here at Coronado who need food to eat, and [Coronado] base[s] it off of Thanksgiving so kids who do not come for a week have food if they need it. This year, [all donations are] going back into the Coronado community and given to Mr. Urban, so he has food for kids year-round in his classroom [and Cougars Care].” The school has decided to make a competition among the classes in that whichever class brings in the most food will be gifted a pizza party. 


All the days correspond with a spirit day where students can choose to dress up if they bring in  canned food. The competition is scored in points either per can or food item. On some days, certain canned foods are worth double points.Gerber says how, , “the spirit days are a great way to get involved and be reminded of all the people who [the school] can help here. Remember that any little thing helps and even if you don’t have a lot to dress up with you can still donate. We will accept any food any day!”
