Greetings for 2013 from the Molson Coors Community Blog. @MolsonFerg here. based in Canada. I’ve been involved with this blog in one way shape or form from its start back in 2007. We tended to speak all things community in Canada and have enjoyed being engaged and involved with so many of our community partners and projects through the blog. It has also been a great platform for our employees to shout out or for us to shout out about the great work that our employees do in their communities. We migrated “location” of the blog to the Molson Coors central web site a year ago. Since then I must admit that the Canadian team has held back on some of our posts, given that they might have felt just a little to Canada centric. Given that our audience now is more global, we felt we needed to be more selective of what we posted, so as not to cause too much spam like content on the blog. We are now in the midst of talking amongst the team on how we are going to utilize the blog to continue to tell stories about community and Molson Coors efforts across our business around the world in areas of corporate responsibility and community engagement.We call this Our Beer Print. SO…we would love to hear from you on what you find interesting, appealing, informing or intriguing by way of this blog. Thanks for taking the time to post some thoughts here or back at me on Twitter or via email. Thanks for your continued interest in Molson Coors and all things beer. Cheers to a great week. @MolsonFerg

I know @MolsonTonia will do a more formal update BUT…30 days with an itchy upper lip is a mild inconvenience compared to the challenge that many men face in beating back cancer in their lives. Mo-Bros at Molson Coors in Canada stepped up this month in a big way. This awareness was also shared by a number of Mo-Sistas at Molson Coors in Canada who joined the campaign to raise awareness and funds during the month. We were also supported by the Rickard’s brand in raising public awareness for this important cause. All said and done the Molson Coors team can proudly shout out our achievement of raising over $184,000.00 to support Movember in Canada. Thanks to all of those colleagues, family, friends and business associates for taking the time to participate and or cash from your pockets to make a difference. Cheers to making a difference in men’s health and to promoting active lifestyles. @MolsonFerg

…I arrived at the office to assume a different chair for the day…a wheelchair ! Molson Coors Canada is supporting the Muscular Dystrophy Wheelchair Dare to raise awareness for MD and raise money to help battle this debilitating disease. It also points to the challenges that those faced with mobility challenges have in carrying out active lifestyles in spite of those challenges. If you’d like to lend your support you can find out more on our community blog at http://blog.molson.com/community/tag/molson-coors-wheelchair-dare/. Thanks for helping us make a difference…proud to play our part along with the good folks at CFRB and GLOBAL TV Toronto…cheers… @MolsonFerg http://amplify.com/u/a132hm

Molson Coors donates $10 000.00 toward the Star City Arena Geothermal project. The project will see a geothermal heating system installed in the rink enabling the creation of artifical ice. This will allow the arena to continue to provide the much needed ice time to the town’s residents and to the residents of the surrounding areas, thereby encouraging greater participation in winter ice sports.

Molson Coors …proud to play our part!

The Beer Store in Ontario and members of Local 12R24 will be taking back returns for Leukemia and Lymphoma this coming Saturday and Sunday, May 29th and 30th. Volunteers will be posted at all 440 Beer Stores across Ontario, to invite customers to donate returns from their empty bottles (any and all beer, wine, spirits containers) to Leukemia research. 100% of the money will be sent directly to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in Canada, to support research in Canada.
2,000 volunteers, many of whom are giving up their shift at work to try to help fund a cure for this disease. This could be the biggest bottle drive in the world (and they are currently registering it with The Guinness World Book of Records). Let’s spread the word about this unique bottle drive at The Beer Store and help them make a difference.
This is the 5th bottle drive. results reported year one $220,000, year two $500,001, year three $647,913 , and last year raised $830,007 totaling over $2 million dollars. One year – maybe this year, they can raise $1,000,000. It’s only as successful as beverage alcohol drinkers in Ontario make it by taking back their empties.
Cheers to the management and staff at The Beer Store for this wonderful initiative. @MolsonFerg

Le 30 décembre dernier, Serge Guy et Alex Zarate se sont rendus à la Maison Chez Doris pour aider à servir le repas du midi. Après avoir assisté le chef cuisinier dans la cuisine et ensuite aider à servir le repas, ils ont remis comme cadeau du Nouvel An, une boite de chocolats à chaque femme. Le coût de ces boites a été entièrement assumé par Serge.
Serge et Alex ont tellement été touchés par cette cause, qu’ils ont l’intention d’y retourner pour Pâques. Sur la photo, on voit Serge en compagnie de Rolande, bénévole depuis environ 20 ans, et Alex.
La Maison Chez Doris est un refuge pour femmes en difficulté qui accueille, tous les jours, près de 125 femmes. Les femmes qui s’y rendent souffrent, pour la plupart, de maladie mentale, et certaines d’entre elles sont itinérantes; ces femmes ont toutefois quelque chose en commun, elles sont seules et elles sont démunies.
Bravo à Serge et Alex pour ce beau geste de générosité!
