Remember last summer? I know, it’s hard to think of those hot sunny days when the snow is 15 feet deep (maybe I’m exaggerating a bit!). Think back to all that fruit that was available for picking. Think back to the chaos surrounding the scheduling of those harvests. It was nasty – we know and we’re sorry. Together, we did the best we could and we survived. Actually, we did more than survive – we rescued and shared over 10,000 lbs of fruit. We did awesome.
Now imagine doing all that good work and not getting frustrated in the process! Imagine a harvest management system that works and makes registering, scheduling, confirming and reporting on harvests super easy, consistent and reliable. Wouldn’t it be a dream. Well, thanks to the support of the United Way Winnipeg’s Organizational Development Fund, our dream is about to come true!
The United Way Winnipeg has granted our application for assistance in building a professional Harvest Management System. This system will build on what we were working on last summer and give us an opportunity to plug the gaps and ensure it meets the needs of fruit owners, fruit pickers and the staff and volunteers who manage the system back in the office. Timing is also critical. We’ll be working diligently to ensure this system will be fully functional for our busy harvest season.
Thank you United Way Winnipeg.
