Thanks to our Ambassadors for A Great Year!

December 29, 2014

Each year, the OtterCares Foundation relies on an amazing group of volunteers from IMG_5537Otter Products and Blue Ocean to help accomplish our goals and engage employees and 2014 was no different. This year we had 68 amazing OtterCares Ambassadors who represented all departments and locations of each company. These hardworking volunteers represent the voice, eyes and ears of the OtterCares Foundation to their coworkers and peers. They drive volunteer projects within their department, engage fellow employees in OtterCares initiatives and help come up with brilliant ideas to advance the mission of OtterCares.  Some of the amazing things they have accomplished as a group this year are:

  • Helped raise over $160,000 for organizations that exemplify the OtterCares mission through our G3 Challenge employee fundraising event
  • Collected more than 4000 books that were distributed at our annual Pack2School event
  • Set up more than 50 volunteer events that helped Otter Products and Blue Ocean employees contribute more than 9,000 hours of volunteer time in 2014
  • Achieved 69% participation rate in employee volunteer programs at Otter Products and Blue Ocean

We also recognize one Ambassador each year that has truly gone above and beyond with our coveted Silver Heart Award. This year’s award went to Drew Hovanec from the OtterBox Boston office. Drew was selected as this year’s recipient because of his enthusiasm for the OtterCares mission and vision and his uncanny ability to engage others around him. He led several volunteer projects in his office and was a true champion for OtterCares. Thank you to Drew, and truly THANK YOU to all of our amazing OtterCares Ambassadors who do so much for the foundation every year! We are looking forward to another wonderful year in 2015!
