CABOT, Vt., April 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- After three successful years, Reward Volunteers, an online program that allows volunteers to track and share the time they spend volunteering, Cabot Creamery Cooperative is announcing the latest update to this powerful and rewarding resource.
Between February 14, 2012 and February 14, 2015 more than 213,000 hours were logged by 3,180 selfless volunteers, to the benefit of more than 2,983 organizations using the Reward Volunteers platform. Reward Volunteers 6.0 seeks to expand that reach by delivering a fresh intuitive interface that can be accessed through any web-enabled device. That means iPhone, Android, Mac, PC, Tablet, Laptop or Desktop computer.
"We are tremendously excited about the launch of Reward Volunteers 6.0," said Cabot Creamery Cooperative's new CEO, Ed Townley. "This is a project of passion for many of us at Cabot. Our farm family owners play an integral role in their local communities. Many of our employees and farmers give time each week to non-profits, including food shelters, volunteer fire companies, town councils and faith-based groups. We created the Reward Volunteers program to promote the virtues of volunteerism."
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 and the more they share, the more chances they have to win. Participation is absolutely free, and more information is available at www.rewardvolunteers.coop.
This launch coincides with National Volunteer Week and National Volunteer Month and helps bring attention to the critically important role that volunteerism plays in communities across America.
Reward Volunteers was conceived and created by Cabot Creamery Cooperative, and is sponsored by AARP Create the Good, All for Good, Points of Light, and National Cooperative Bank. Version 6.0 was developed by Samaritan Technologies.
