Cabot Creamery is a co-op made up of more than 1,000 farm families. Plus, they employ over 1,000 people in four plants across three states. They are passionate about community values and strive to leverage volunteerism with a program run by their "Department of Gratitude". Reward Volunteers was created by Cabot Creamery to celebrate all of those who make communities stronger - like Rotary.
Through Reward Volunteers  volunteers can earn "Reach Points" to earn cash prizes for their organization's projects and charities.

Jo Sabel Courtney was the speaker on July 10th, 2018. She works for Cabot Creamery's Department of Gratitude.
"We’ve been a co-op since 1919, but many of our farms have been around for even longer than that. And many of our families have been working their land for generations. Our kids go to school here, in buildings our ancestors helped build. We’re proud of that. We’re proud to be rooted in our communities. 

So that’s why we open our farms up and celebrate with friends, neighbors, and whoever else wants to stop by. That’s why we hand out cheese at events and grill up meals for volunteers. That’s why we teach kids all about fresh food and the importance of farms.

Supporting our communities’ matters to us.

Of course, in a powerful way, all this depends on you, too. Here’s how we see it: we love making the best cheddar in the world, and if you love our cheese, well, then that means we get to keep doing it. You’re a big part of this community, and we’re grateful for your support."

Jo elaborated many ways Cabot supports non profits like Rotary including  Reward Volunteers. Log your service!
