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.

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.

Volunteering a Moncton Headstart

Volunteering at Moncton Headstart

Earlier this month the NB/PEI sales and marketing team spent some time volunteering at Moncton Headstart.  Headstart is a charitable non-profit early family intervention agency focused on building school readiness skills with children and their parents. Programs and services aim to build healthy relationships, improve self-esteem, develop new skills, enhance existing skills, and encourage self-sufficiency  Our Molson team spent time in the kitchen preparing snack for the pre-school program and then lunch for the staff, parents and volunteers.  The Molson volunteers built story sacks with a group of parents who’s children attend Headstart.

Story Sacks are built to encourage parents and children to read and enjoy books and activities together.  A book is selected and developmentally appropriate activities are built around the story.  It is vitally important that children are read to each day and building and using story sacks are just one way to support this to happen.

The parents at the centre were keen to build story sacks and, with our help they were able to make it happen!
