After another busy month of volunteer activity, Cabot Creamery Cooperative, the farm family owned dairy cooperative widely known as the makers of the “World’s Best Cheddar,” announced the most recent round of Reward Volunteers winners. 16 selfless volunteers and one nonprofit organization will be rewarded with a variety of prizes, including a $500 donation, artisan cheese baskets, gift cards, a year’s supply of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream and two different Vermont vacation getaways.
“We are extremely proud of this month’s winners,” says Jen Neary, Cabot Director of Marketing, Integrated Services, “who come from states all across the country. Their efforts help protect, enrich and uplift the lives of the animals, children and adults of their communities. Our goal for Reward Volunteers is to thank and honor those who give so much of their lives to helping others, and simultaneously inspire more people to become volunteers.”
Reward Volunteers launched in February of 2012. Since then, the program has grown every month, and given away thousands of dollars in cash and prizes to deserving volunteers and volunteer organizations. Reward Volunteers 5.0, the fifth iteration of the revolutionary iPhone app and web widget, has already seen more than 4,900 acts of kindness, generosity, and community support - totaling more than 25,000 hours - logged by individuals in service of non-profit organizations across the country.
The Reward Volunteers iPhone App and web widget from Cabot Creamery Cooperative enables individuals and organizations to track the time they spend volunteering in their communities, post to Facebook, and earn rewards for themselves and the organizations they serve. At the end of each month, Cabot rewards volunteers for their hard work, and for inspiring friends and family to do the same, with a variety of prizes. The more hours volunteers log, the more chances to win. Participation is absolutely free.
