Molson Coors employees in the Community

Caledon Re-Use Store

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.

Moncton Headstart

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.

Winnipeg Harvest

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.

Cheers to the Creemore Springs Community Clean-up

Creemore Springs Clean up Crew

A couple weeks ago, a team of Creemore Springs employees spent three hours on their Saturday morning doing a community clean-up at Creemore Nature Reserve.  Creemore’s Brewmaster (and clean-up organizer) Gordon Fuller’s take on the morning is below. Thanks Gord!

Creemore Springs Nature Reserve Clean Up

Our service event at the Creemore Nature reserve was a great success.

Twelve guys (and a couple of half pint helpers) spent 3 hours Saturday morning clearing trails and removing remnants of some old bridges. A representative of the Nature Conservancy of Canada (the land owner) was on hand to help and give us direction (or keep us pointed in the right direction). It turned out to be much harder work than we expected, because the NCC, for liability reasons, didn’t allow us to use power tools (eg chain saws), so we ended up removing some reasonably large trees the old fashioned way. The weather was perfect, the guys enjoyed the morning in the bush, and I think the NCC was tickled by the amount we accomplished. All in all a good day!
