Share Your Thanks

I've decided to take a bit of a different turn with this blog. In addition to blogging about events that are linked to Winnipeg Harvest and their results, I thought I'd share a bit more about what is going on inside the Winnipeg Harvest warehouse.

Being the social media coordinator, I'm only here in the office once a week, but there's always a lot of work to do and a lot going on here in the warehouse.

Everything's looking different now that we've started the construction on our other warehouse. We've moved everything over to a new building that we've recently accquired, and we've all been given makeshift offices that resemble plywood cubicles to hold us over for the next little while.

Today was a relatively calm day for me, I've recently joined the Share Your Thanks committee, and have been busy designing the bag for the 2010 campaign. This is Winnipeg Harvest's 25th year, so we're trying to do something really cool with the bag. We'll see how it goes...

Have a good weekend!
