As we are winding down our volunteer season we would like to give a hearty thank you to our volunteers from Dell EMC. As is always the case this group of volunteers is with us from the beginning of our season right to the end. In fact the last group that will volunteer in North Grafton this year is one of our regular teams from Dell EMC. Whether it be early planting in cool temperatures or bad weather, weeding or harvesting in the heat of summer, helping to pick apples or working to prepare our fields for winter these teams always answer the call for help. Coming from all parts of their company and all over the area and beyond we are lucky to have this team on our side.
It’s funny how things around here take root, at this point there are Dell EMC Team Members who return year after year and look forward to visiting our farms. These roots run deep and our estimate for Dell EMC Team Members that volunteered with Community Harvest Project this year is 909 volunteers that served over 2,700 hours helping us grow and distribute healthy locally grown produce to those seeking hunger relief services in our community. Individually this is powerful work but cumulatively this group of volunteers is a force to be reckoned with.
With that being said we would like to collectively thank this group of volunteers for their impact on our work. This relationship has grown immensely over the years and we are awestruck by the level of commitment we receive from the Dell EMC Community. So, to each and everyone of you who came out to help or coordinated a group from the office we would like to say thank you. Thank you for all of your effort, working through the cold, rain, heat and mud and giving us your energy and drive. We can’t do this great work without the dedication of thousands and we are humbled by the fact that you choose to work with Community Harvest Project. Thank you Team Dell EMC, we really appreciate this partnership and are already looking forward to your visits in 2018.
