09 Nov Season of Giving Thanks
Thanksgiving right is around the corner and we wanted to share how proud and thankful we are for our employees and their generosity in helping their neighbors and co-workers during times of need. As many know Broetje Orchards management practices Servant Leadership and part of that practice is how do we serve others so that they are freer, wiser and more autonomous. One of the programs that the employees came up with is “The Employee Matching Fund.” This year, over twenty crews and several departments participated in this this year and raised a total of $6,306.77 through this Employee Led Initiative. The company has matched these donations for a total of $14,058.70, in return have has met a variety of needs including funeral costs and medical expenses. This program is a wonderful testament to our employees’ compassion. Our mission statement is “To be a quality fruit company committed to Bearing Fruit… Fruit that will last.” While our employees are living proof of our mission statement, we want to thank them in becoming servant leaders within their own departments.
