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.
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.
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.
