CU System
Co-op launches mobile app to log volunteers hours
CABOT, Vt. (2/15/12)--Cabot Creamery Cooperative has launched Reward Volunteers, the first U.S. mobile app that allows volunteers to log hours, post to Facebook and win rewards for themselves and the organizations they serve. 

The app is one of the International Year of Cooperatives' initiatives developed under the auspices of the National Cooperative Business Association's International Year of the Cooperatives Steering Committee, which includes CUNA among its members.

Cabot Creamery is a sponsor of CUNA's weekly Home & Family Finance Radio program.

Reward Volunteers is easy to use, said Cabot Creamery. Volunteers select the organization for which they are volunteering, log the length of time volunteered, and post their efforts on Facebook. They can win prizes for themselves and nonprofit organizations by increasing their logged hours, sharing post/photos, sending e-mails, and securing Facebook "likes" for their volunteer posts.

To download the free app, visit iTunes.

Cabot developed Reward Volunteers in collaboration with Chalo Inc., a social business start-up. It can be used on the iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, and as a Web-based program on RewardVolunteer.coop.
