Over 40 of Molson’s BC sales staff and management took a break from their sales conference in Victoria on April 10 to help give back to the local community by volunteering at the Salvation Army homeless shelter and its Beacon Bus mobile unit. Fifteen of the Molson staff remained at the shelter and prepared and served dinner to 80 of Victoria’s most vulnerable citizens while the other 25 traveled to Blanshard Court, one of Victoria’s most marginalized housing developments, to serve hot food and distribute donations.

Fuelled by our incredible success at our National Sales Conference in February, where Molson employees raised over $90,000 in one morning to support Raising the Roof, BC sales staff contacted Volunteer Victoria looking for opportunities to support the community during their April sales conference. By working directly with Volunteer Victoria and the Salvation Army, local Molson sales associate Tye Spicer was able to organize a volunteer effort that was very meaningful to those most in need in the Victoria community.

I was one of the fifteen who helped prepare and serve dinner at the Salvation Army and  it was a very meaningful experience for all of us there – the teamwork and camaraderie exhibited by the BC sales team was amazing. Many thanks to Tye, Volunteer Victoria and the Salvation Army for their assistance in creating this opportunity to give back!
