2016 Autumn Pack Day – Pears

Yesterday morning, a group of local Albanian fruit growers and volunteers gave up their time to pack fruit at Shaholli Orchards. This pack day follows on from the success of last year’s two pack days, which saw over $20,000 raised for the Shepparton Albanian Society.

Part of this money was used to upgrade the front and back fences at the mosque, which was completed last year.

The Society also made a donation to GV Hospice Care.

Thank you to everyone involved in organising this community-driven fundraising effort! We hope to make some announcements on the projects that this funding will support soon.

 

 

Autumn Pack Day for Pink Lady Apples

Today we held our last pack day of the season, packing 26 bins of premium pink lady apples, grown in Shepparton, Victoria by Albanian farmers.

Thanks again to all orchardists and suppliers who donated their fruit, packaging and labour to the project.
