Log your volunteer time so we can win money for Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports

Reward Volunteers is a free easy way to record the time you spend volunteering in your local community. When you log time, and elect to share activity via Facebook you become eligible to win prizes like vacations, gift cards, gift baskets, and much more.  The more time logged and the more likes and comments a volunteer receives, the more chances to win one of the major prizes awarded each month.

When you log your time, you may end up helping us!  Each month a cash prize is awarded to a non-profit that has volunteers logging time on their behalf.  We are so thankful for the work of our volunteers and volunteers everywhere.  Make your time count double with cash prize for Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports.

The program was developed by the farm families who own Cabot Creamery Co-operative.  Cabot farmers are often the first to volunteer in their local communities and they look to honor the important efforts of volunteers across the country.

So… what are you waiting for? Click through to start logging your time and inspiring others through your service!
