A Recap of New Harvest’s 2020 Year in Review Zoom Call with the Team

Published November 13, 2020 | Updated June 14, 2021 | Morgan Ziegelski

New Harvest decided to kick off our end-of-year fundraising live and on Zoom. Without the conference this past summer, we wanted a way to show our community all that we’ve accomplished.

In the spirit of the conference, we asked our audience some questions on Slido along the way. We also, of course, used the platform for an interactive Q&A at the end. 

The meeting served as a kick-off for us to announce our end of year fundraising goal. Thanks to some of the community members who attended, we’re already a little closer to that goal!
