Notes of Thanks…

At Molson Coors Canada we continue to be proud to play oure part in the Community across so many dimensions. Our focus remains on promoting active lifestyle not for profits and those Community Champions that help to make our communities a better place to live, play and work.

It’s always so re-assuring when we hear back from those with whom we work with in the community. Something as simple as a few empty beer cartons can go a long way to helping not for profit agencies in our community.

I thought I’d share this note of thanks in response to cartons provided to the Hamilton Food Share program. Thanks for the thanks Cass. Cheers !

Gentlemen:

The boxes arrived yesterday.

Thanks so very much as they will be split between
Hamilton Food Share, which includes some 14 Foodbanks
in the greater Hamilton area and Partnership West, my
organization who will have some 3,000 visits over the next
12 months.

Each visit to Partnership West means a full Molson / Coors box of
canned and dry goods with a retail value of just under $ 100.

Once again thank for your support, you are the good guys.

Regards,

Cass Quinn

Thanks Sagree for sharing the day with us! Cheers, CaroleB

Calgary employees built on Molson Coors tradition of being Proud to Play Our Part in our community on Friday, Jan 15th. We spent  a total of 75 volunteer hours at the Calgary Inter-Faith Food Bank, processed 10 700lbs of food, packed  301 emergency hampers and touched the lives of 763 people.
The Calgary Food Bank is experiencing the greatest increase in demand in its history,  up 40 per cent this year due to the economic downturn. But staff remains confident the charity can meet this growing need for food, thanks to your our continued support. For every $1 donated, the Food Bank can distribute $4 of food and Molson Coors helped distribute $20 000,00  of food.

North York Harvest Food Bank and Molson “Load it up”

Molson Team from L – R  First Row - Carl Vajda, Chris Evans, Ian Starkman, Josh Smith, Graydon, Steve Fridulin. Second Row – Rod Monkman, Joel Apostolon, Andy Gervais, John Anderson, Frank Ivankovic join North York Harvest Food Bank’s Lisa Anderson, Volunteer Services Manager and Gloria Baldwin, Development Officer.

I met up with Frank and his GTA Team and we rolled in with a donation of $5000.00 and to lend a helping hand to sort food last Wednesday.   I was astounded at the number of people this group touches, over 20,000 a year drop in at least once.  Hat’s off to all you for helping.
