Ottens Flavors hosted a drive for school supplies for UrbanPromise, an organization that works with underprivileged youth in the Camden, NJ area to achieve educational success.

On October 25, Ottens Flavors’ employees, families and friends participated in the JDRF Walk to change the future for people living with type 1 diabetes by raising money for research.

Ottens Flavors Annual Turkey Drive - Ottens Flavors’ employees held an annual Thanksgiving Drive for ACHIEVEability, a Philadelphia-based non-profit organization that helps low income, single parent, and homeless families in the Philadelphia area. The organization helps families become self-reliant by providing a full range of academic, employment, housing and family support services to maximize each family's growth. Through the Ottens Flavors employees efforts, we donated 50 Thanksgiving meals to local families in need.
