Molson Coors employees in Western Canada step up for Month of Action

What an honour it was to be a part of Western Canada’s volunteering initiative for Molson Coors’ April Month of Action. On April 30th, almost 75 Molson Coors employees in 7 different cities (Winnipeg, Regina, Saskatoon, Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver and Victoria), across 4 different provinces, volunteered their time at local Food Banks helping those in need. As a result of the thousands of pounds of food sorted and packed by Molson Coors employees,  literally thousands of people were and will be positively affected from Manitoba through to BC.

Below are some pictures and info from each city.

Hats off to everyone in Western Canada who Played Their Part in helping to make to make life a little brighter for those in need.
