The Student Wellness Initiative Toward Community Health (SWITCH) and Molson Coors Canada teamed up to serve Thanksgiving dinner on Saturday, October 10th at SWITCH from 11am – 1:30pm.  With help from sponsorship support, Molson Coors Canada employees, and student volunteers,  SWITCH  served a turkey dinner to residents of Saskatoon’s core neighbourhoods.  In addition to employees lending a helping hand, Molson Coors Canada made a $7500.00 donation to SWITCH.

One of only four student managed primary health care centers in Canada, SWITCH operates an after-hours inter professional wellness centre which is managed by student volunteers from the University of Saskatchewan, University of Regina and SIAST in the disciplines of medicine, nursing, social work, clinical psychology, pharmacy, nutrition, kinesiology, physical therapy, public health, arts and science, educational psychology and dentistry.  Students provide clinical, social and program services and are mentored by professionals from those same disciplines and more.  Together, they provide holistic health care to residents of Saskatoon’s core neighbourhoods.

Cheers to Sastachewan Sales Manager Devin Baxter and the Saskatoon sales team for playing their part to make their community a better place!

Saskatchewan sales staff play their part to support Regina’s most vulnerable citizens


What a great – and brisk – night we had in Regina last Thursday as Saskatchewan’s sales staff, led by sales manager Devin Baxter, served up some fine Molson products, with all proceeds benefiting the Regina Transition House. In partnership with La Bodega Tapas Bar and Grill, Molson rep Craig Zimmer created an in-bar promotion with all proceeds from Molson sales at La Bodega’s outdoor Ice Bar, which Molson helped to build, going to the Regina Transition House. Sales from the evening raised almost $1000 and Molson donated an additional $2000, for a total of almost $3000 going to help Regina’s most vulnerable citizens. The Regina Transition House provides services and short term emergency housing to women and children fleeing violence. It has provided service to close to 12,000 women and children over the last 32 years, an average of approximately 400 people per year. Maria Hendrika, Executive Director of the Transition house, was in attendance and was overjoyed with Molson’s donation. This is yet another example of Molson employees proudly playing their part by getting out and helping the communities that they serve.
