CotterWeb encourages and supports giving back to the community. We strive to make a difference in our members’ lives, our team members and their families. Equally important we are committed to giving back to our community.
We are the products of the local Minnesota community that has nourished us, educated us and supported our business expansion into the global business we are today. As such we believe in giving back, providing opportunities to others and making a difference in the local community. We give back in three ways; Company-sponsored volunteer events, working with local non-profits that create opportunities for people with developmental disabilities and individual acts of volunteerism.
Lifeworks is a local non-profit organization that helps people with disabilities live fuller lives that re integrated into the flow of community experience. Through employment at area businesses, social enrichment opportunities and customized support services, Lifeworks provides the tools clients need to build the lives they want to live. Every week Lifeworks team members work with us to stuff envelopes and prepare our member earnings checks for mailing.
Proact is an organization dedicated to serving people with disabilities and other challenges with a wide range of services that enhance employments skills and self-sufficiency capabilities. Every month Proact members stamp 10,000 – 15,000 envelopes which are used for our member mailings.

We volunteered our afternoon to help pack food for Feed My Starving Children.
As a company we set out to fill shoeboxes with toys, school supplies, hygiene items and more for children in need. We accomplished that goal with overflowing boxes!
