To increase mental health awareness and decrease the stigma of mental illness in the community. The conference is a great opportunity for networking and connecting the community to services offered in the Lehigh Valley. The Harvest Full of Hope conference is a free event.
Harvest Full of Hope began in 2001 in the Recreation Center at Allentown State Hospital. Allentown State Hospital closed in December 2010. A contest was held for the patients to name the event and "A Harvest Full of Hope" was the winning entry. In 2002, the event was taken out of Allentown State Hospital and mental health providers throughout the Lehigh Valley were included.
Harvest Full of Hope has been hosted in many locations throughout the Valley, such as St. Luke's Hospital, The Banana Factory, Sacred Heart Hospital, the Muhlenberg campus of the Lehigh Valley Health Network, and since 2010 the Four Points by Sheraton.
Harvest Full of Hope continues to strive to expand its programs and offerings to the community. We hope that you will be able to take part in one or more of the many exciting events that we are offering this year and experience first hand the pride we take in supporting our cause. By giving to this annual event you'll be supporting the Harvest Full of Hope Conference and helping us provide assistance to those in our community. We ask that you will consider a sponsorship donation of $ 1000.00. Your donation will be recognized at our event in several ways. As a sponsor, your name will be placed on all materials and banners that publicize the event as well as announced verbally at the event itself. Remember that every donation makes a difference, regardless of size. Harvest Full of Hope can only achieve its goals with the assistance of generous donations from members of our community. Without these donations, serving those in our area would not be possible.
