FORT COLLINS, Colo., April 15, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- On April 22, Otter Products will close its doors in all global locations for a day of volunteering — safely in-person and virtually. In partnership with the OtterCares Foundation, the closed2open event pauses all Otter Products' operations around the world for one day to allow employees to make a difference in their communities by volunteering with local organizations.
"Giving time back to our communities has always been core to our company and that need is more apparent now than ever as we are pulling out of this pandemic," said Otter Products CEO Jim Parke. "Closed2open is a day that we close our doors to open our hearts, and we hope others will join us in this mission of giving."
In its fifth year, this closed2open day has evolved, with extra safety precautions put in place and virtual volunteer opportunities available. Otter Products employees will spend the day supporting a variety of causes throughout our communities.
In addition to closed2open, Otter Products encourages employees to volunteer year-round by offering 24 hours of volunteer time off each year. In 2020, Otter Product employees were able to find safe and creative way to help those in need – from making and donating masks to front line workers to providing virtual portfolio reviews to students. In total, Otter Products employees volunteered 9,894 hours in 2020.
Join Otter Product employees around the world April 22 (or any day) by volunteering with or donating to your favorite local organization to make a positive change in your community.
