Harvest of Love was born in the Social Studies Department at Doherty High School, thanks to Mr. Vigil, in 1996. In 1998, the Harvest of Love torch was passed to Doherty’s Student Council. Each year, the Student Council decides how much money each member needs to raise to beat the previous year’s record. It’s usually between $500-$1,000 per representative.
Each year, the Harvest of Love tradition at Doherty, and many other local schools, continues to build momentum. This year, Doherty collected more than $50,000 (an all-time record) and 13,850 pounds of food! We are so grateful to all of these future leaders. They are our heroes.
