On October 10, 2012, the Molson Coors St. John’s Brewery held its annual Volunteer Day. With the brewery closed in order to perform electrical sub-station upgrades, more than 60 employees took advantage of the downtime to give back to the community.
Shelley Hickey took the lead role in working with the City of St. John’s to come up with an effective action plan. After tropical storm Leslie, which hit the island back in September, there was a need to extensively reclaim and repair several local parks, walking trails and riverside areas. In addition, the brewery wanted to build on the Molson Canadian Red Leaf Project, whereby several employees planted trees along the nearby, historic Rennie’s River.
With tools, safety vests, garbage bags and the usual Molson Coors St. John’s can-do attitude, the team went to work. In only a few short hours, several large piles of fallen trees and debris were gathered, flower gardens were cleaned, 450 seedlings were planted and a local park and walking area looked like new. The team finished the day with a neighbourhood walkabout, whereby 60 bags of garbage were collected from the streets around the brewery known as Georgestown.
A great day was had by all as the employees of Molson Coors St. John’s once again showed how important our community is to us and how giving back is fundamental to how we do business! As icing on the cake, the brewery was publicly acknowledged by the Mayor of St. John’s on a live television broadcast of the weekly City Council meeting.
“Molson staff did a great job and accomplished a great deal of work…It was great to see the business community giving back to the city,” said Mayor Dennis O’Keefe.

Le 7 septembre dernier, un groupe de huit (8) employés Molson Coors se sont donnés la mission de s’impliquer dans un des nombreux projets de l’organisme “Habitat pour l’humanité région des Deux-Montagnes“. Je vous présente notre super équipe de manuels: François-Éric Garant (capitaine), Simon Pepin, Steve Trudel, Robert Lapointe, David Thuot, Robert Noël, Sylvain Boudreau et François Bernier.
L’organisme sans but lucratif Habitat pour l’humanité région des Deux-Montagnes pourra remettre d’ici une dizaine de semaines les clés de la nouvelle maison à la famille Champagne-Lapointe. Depuis la pelletée de terre tenue le 28 mai dernier, la construction de la maison sur la rue Paul à Sainte-Marthe-sur-le-Lac a vivement progressée, pour le plus grand plaisir de la famille Champagne-Lapointe, la famille choisie.
Je partage cette merveilleuse et généreuse histoire avec vous par le biais de superbes photos:
1) Une équipe qui participe et procède en plus à la remise d’une contribution financière de 5,000$ dans le cadre de son Programme de bénévolat Molson Coors
2) Quelques membres de l’équipe qui n’ont pas peur des hauteurs:
3) Après quelques travaux de travaux physiques, le temps est venu de faire le plein d’énergie:
4) On reprend le travail, mais on n’oublie surtout pas une courte pause pour récupérer ses courriels … un bénévole ne fait aucun compromis!
5) Faut bien qu’un bénévole se sacrifie et prenne quelques clichés:
6) Célébrations, après une journée bien remplie physiquement et moralement … le temps d’une SUPER bière qui laissera son empreinte dans la communauté – s’agit-il d’un produit Molson? Absolument!
Bravo pour cette empreinte d’une équipe formidable qui est définitivement hors de sa zone habituelle, pour faire une différence pour une famille qui ne l’oubliera pas de sitôt!

Last week a group of Molson Coors employees (in above photo) volunteered at the 36th annual Telemiracle in Regina Saskatchewan. The event, often referred to by the community as “Saskachewan’s charity” is lead by the Kinsmen & Kinettes of SK and all the funds raised stay in the province. It’s the largest and longest running Telethon charity in Canada. This year, our team of volunteers answered phones and took donations for three hours to help raise over $5.9 million (record). After the fundraising, our team ensured all the volunteers enjoyed an ice cold beer to celebrate the successful initiative. Thanks to Mike Tate, Sales Manager, SK for leading this volunteer opportunity! Cheers.

A team of Molson Coors volunteers in Ontario spent some time at the Caledon ReUse store. The ReUse store takes donations of all types and re-sells them to the general public through their store. They have been successful in diverting almost 1 million pounds away from Caledon landfills each year and contribute a significant amount of money annually to Caledon Community Services, a multi-service, community-impact organization that helps people help themselves by working creatively and responding to community needs like, among other things, homelessness, hunger, employment services, support for new Canadians and for seniors.
The Molson Coors team assisted the accepting of donations, sorting the goods and merchandising them in the store … just in time for the holiday rush! It was a great afternoon and a very worthwhile cause, thanks to all of the volunteers; Mel Salerno, Nadia Said, Angela Kacin, Janice Moore, Mark Thomas and Will Meijer.
And to the East….another team of volunteers got behind a Christmas box program with Moncton Headstart (local foodbank). With a $5,000 donation in hand to help kick off the campaign, the 30 Molson Coors employees raised another $700 and spent a day delivering boxes of food.
And over to Winnipeg where a team of 10 Molson Coors employees spent an afternoon wrapping Christmas gifts for families & putting together food hampers for those in need with Winnipeg Harvest.

It’s that time of year when we all hope we can somehow make an impact in the communities where we work and live. Whether it’s purchasing a toy for a holiday gift drive, a donation to your local food bank, or volunteering at a holiday fundraising event. Just last week, our Molson Coors employees reminded me again how the holidays can bring out the best in people and how proud I am to work with people who care about their communities.

Our Vancouver sales crew rolled up their sleeves to ensure over 350 servings of homemade chili, buns, fruit and treats made their way to the less fortunate who live on the streets of the downtown east side. “We are all proud to work for a company that cares about those whose journeys seem all uphill. Thanks for allowing us to do this every year” Lynda Perovich

Last Thursday, September 15, within the scope of our “SEPTEMBER WATER STEWARDSHIP MONTH”, more than 100 employees from Molson Coors got engaged to clean up the shoreline in Verdun … under a pouring rain that never stopped! Another proof that Molson Coors employees, our greatest assets, can challenge the expected, and leave a positive beer print in our environment.
An annual September initiative along with our partner WWF-Canada, represented by Marie-Claude Lemieux in Québec.
Congrats to our amazing team for making this event a great success, and a special tribute to our “Build the Bench” team (15 employees in training) that succeeded to put in place a great connecting activity, which is so far from their day-to-day job! Cheers!
Cheers to a wonderful group of employees who challenged the rain to make that event a great success!
