Harvest of Hope

Harvest of Hope

Harvest of Hope is Catholic Charities’ largest annual fundraiser that allows us to continue our work all year long. The annual Harvest of Hope event means so much to so many. It means being able to feed a hungry family, put shoes on a barefoot child, provide diapers to a single mother, and expand services in a way never done before throughout all eight counties within the Diocese of Fresno.

Your support allows hope to be shared with those who are hungry, homeless, seeking refuge, disaster-stricken, out-of-work and suffering every single day.

The harvest continues to be made possible for over 200,000 people each year because of you.


The Merced Harvest of Hope will take place on August 20th, 2022 at St. Patrick’s Parish Hall and the Fresno Harvest of Hope will take place on September 24th, 2022 at Valdez Hall. Please note that we are working on a Spring event in Bakersfield to support our programs and services in Kern and Inyo counties. Stay tuned for more information.

Please join us for this year’s Harvest of Hope as you continue to make an incredible impact for those less fortunate. Thank you for your continued commitment to embracing the vulnerable, the weak and the poor who walk through the doors of Catholic Charities.
