This month we would like to applaud a very large and mighty volunteer group that offers unique support to Community Harvest Project year in and year out . Our friends at Dell EMC continue to connect with our work in large numbers and over the last couple of years they have volunteered at such a rate that they account for almost a quarter of our total volunteer count. Year after year Dell EMC group coordinators do the work of organizing teams to come out and help with our hunger relief efforts. Because of this effort this year brings to a total of over 10,000 volunteer visits to our Grafton and Harvard since they began visiting.
Our Dell EMC volunteers also find creative ways to help us drive our mission with interesting events such as holiday luncheons or an inside mini golf tournament at headquarters with proceeds being donated to support our work. They recognize the great need in our community to provide healthy produce to those seeking hunger relief services. It is fitting that this level of support comes to us via Hopkinton as that is where our little project started with the Abbotts original Elmwood Farm. We like to think that they would be proud to see the amount of support sprouting out from Dell EMC just down the road from their farm.
We would like to thank the entire Dell EMC Team for their incredible support in 2018 and look forward to seeing them back on our farms next year. We could not do this work without their help and are humbled that they continue to choose to work with Community Harvest Project.
