Each year in the month of April, thousands of Americans donate time, energy and passion to non-profit organizations all over the country in honor of National Volunteer Month. OtterBox® and its non-profit foundation, OtterCaresSM, made their mark by encouraging employees and customers alike to give back. OtterBox employees volunteered hundreds of hours for dozens of local organizations including Food Bank for Larimer County, Turning Point, The Wild Animal Sanctuary, Wildlands Restoration Volunteers and Habitat for Humanity.
The volunteerism efforts of OtterCares extend beyond Fort Collins, Colo., in which the company and foundation are based. In celebration of National Volunteer Month, the foundation recognized customers who participate in volunteerism by hosting an online contest asking for volunteer story submissions. One respondent will be rewarded with a $500 donation to the charity of their choice. To read the volunteer stories from OtterBox customers visit the OtterBlog or OtterCares webpage. Winner will be announced Thursday May 5, 2011.
“The creative ways people get involved and give back are truly amazing,” said Tricia Lemmer, OtterCares Development Director. “We wanted to encourage our network of employees and customers to share their stories and reward them for the charitable work they do on a regular basis.”

OtterCares serves not only as an instrument of charitable giving in the community, but also as an outlet for employee volunteerism, offering OtterBox employees a chance to engage in the community with events and organizations that the foundation supports.
