During the fall of 2016, Falcon High School’s Air Force Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps partnered with the Care and Share foundation to provide meals for local families in need during the holiday season. This event is known as the Harvest of Love and is held annually by the Falcon AFJROTC program in the high school spanning from October 31st to November 24th with a yearly goal of 17,000 pounds worth of donations.
The event was led by Cadets Robert Loughman and Spencer Scamman . With the direction of SASI Col. Turner, ASI Sgt. Hartley, ASI Chief Skender and the help of the entire school student body , over 1,200 families were fed totaling over 24,000 pounds of food donated in under a month. Students and cadets look forward to the Harvest of Love event every year for the opportunity to help hundreds of local families enjoy their holiday.
