Feed the Need

Harrisburg Academy, with partnership from the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank, was thrilled to host its Feed the Need Packing Party on Feb. 21, 2018. Nearly 200 participants – students, siblings, parents, grandparents, faculty, staff, and administrators – came together for four hours to pack 10,000 meals for hungry children. Equally as exciting, this fundraiser raised over $75,000 to benefit both the Academy and the meal packing effort.


The Academy thanks its corporate sponsors, Northwest Bank, JDK Group, Pennlive/The Patriot-News, Comprehensive Financial Associates, Giant Food Stores, PA Pension Planners, and UPMC Pinnacle, for contributing $50,000 of the money raised. The Academy is grateful to its families for raising an impressive $30,000, themselves!



About Feed the Need

Our school hosted a very special event called Feed the Need this year.  This school-wide fundraiser not only helped Harrisburg Academy raise funds for technology, arts/music, scholarships, athletics, faculty, and innovation, but a portion of the funds we raised went toward providing healthy meals for hungry children in our community and abroad.  Academy families participated in Feed the Need's culminating event -- the Packing Party! At this event, our school community -- current families, faculty and staff, alumni, local leaders -- hand packed 10,000 meals that were distributed to the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank for local families and to children and orphans in Haiti. This event was an extraordinary opportunity for our students to not only raise funds for our school, but to be part of a significant give-back experience. Working together in this way, we continue to help our children develop a greater sense of gratitude and appreciation for what they have, and grow in sensitivity for those who have less.
