President and CEO of Molson in Canada, Kevin Boyce, joined with colleagues in Moncton earlier today to celebrate the one year anniversary of the Moncton Molson Brewery opening with a $15,000 cheque to Headstart. This money will be dedicated to the Headstart Food Box program this holiday season and will benefit 200 families in the Moncton area.
Clare Archibald from Moncton Headstart spoke about last year’s total of 1700 food boxes that would have provided food to over 3700 people. Archibald is hopeful that Molson’s efforts will encourage other corporations and individuals to provide support for this worthwhile cause.
Kevin Boyce spoke about the inspiration that he felt when touring the Headstart kitchen during last year’s brewery opening festivities. Moncton Mayor George LeBlanc was also on hand and as a past president of Moncton Headstart he spoke about the impact that this food box initiative has on families who are receiving this kind of support.
Molson has a long standing heritage and history of supporting the greater community. Kevin Boyce spoke about the company and the pride that Molson employees have in being involved in their communities.
