Cozy Holiday Gift~Away Event


Harvest Fest Gift~Away Event
October 24, 2020, Ventura


Kids & Families Together (K&FT) and Heart 2 Heart would like to thank our generous sponsors, donors, partners, and volunteers
for their generous support and contributions toward our 11th Annual Harvest Fest Gift Away event!

Special appreciation to Crosspoint Church for hosting the event and making it such a success! The event was also enriched with providing essential needs of a gift card and more from our generous sponsor,  The Gene Haas Foundation!

This year, Harvest Fest was a contactless, drive-thru event set up with several Trunk O’ Treat-style booths with various themes to view as families drove through. Despite the current situation, this was a fun family event with music, lots of Fall/Halloween decorations and treats! Many of our volunteers and families dressed up in costume and families decorated their cars for a Harvest/Halloween Parade. It was a fantastic event with over 230 children with 77 families who received gift cards, costumes, pumpkins, candy, essential items, art/craft/science kits and more!
