‘Tis the season to GIVE – Calgary employees help the less fortunate over Christmas by partnering with the   Inn from the Cold , a place of hope for Calgary’s homeless families. To learn more please visit their website Inn from the Cold.

This is the fourth year that Molson Coors Employees in Calgary have sponsored a family who have made great strides to get back on their feet.  Molson Coors  Elf’s rallied together to help the family by putting together gifts hampers of the family’s “needs” as well as items on their “wish list”.  On December 23rd , Molson Coors Elf’s delivered gifts to the family.
Thank you to all those that participated and helped to make this the BEST CHRISTMAS for those in need in our community!

Once again, Molson Coors Calgary employees are “proud to play their part in our community”

Cheers from Calgary Elf,  Sagree!

On Friday, January 23rd twenty members of the Calgary sales and market development teams donated their time to sort food at the Calgary Inter-Faith Food Bank. In 3 hours, the team helped sort over 17,000 pounds of food and put together food hampers – quite an accomplishment! Area Vice President Rick Tousaw also presented a cheque to the Food Bank from Molson for $5,000.

It was a very moving experience for many on the team to see the magnitude of the operation and to hear that in December of 2008, 26% more people came to the Food Bank than the same period the previous year.  We at Molson are proud to play our part 365 days a year in helping to give back to our communities.
