Thirty years after they opened their doors to folks in need, the Harvest Project is opening their doors to the entire community.
The North Vancouver non-profit, which provides everything from grocery support to art therapy, is holding an open house at their Roosevelt Crescent office on Thursday, Nov. 2 from 5 to 8 p.m.
The intent is to invite the wider community of neighbours, donors and supporters on the North Shore to see the organization’s successes up close.
The Harvest Project was launched in 1993 by David Foster, a West Vancouver businessman who fell on hard times personally and professionally and wound up on the street. Today, the non-profit operates on a “client care” model, which looks at people in need of help holistically and aims to address areas of concern across their lives.
To celebrate their 30 years of giving a hand up, the Harvest Project commissioned a digital mosaic, bearing the non-profit’s brand, but made up of hundreds of smaller images, personal anecdotes and press clippings. To see the growing mosaic or to contribute directly to it, visit harvestproject.org/30th-anniversary/.
The mosaic will have its public debut at the open house, along with live music, light refreshments and a few words from longtime volunteers and local dignitaries.
