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.

Moncton Headstart

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.

Winnipeg Harvest

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.

Sales Rep, Ed McGurry and P&E Manager, Tracey Winch,  along with the ever popular Molson Canadian Extreme Team, connect Molson Canadian to Hockey in the COMMUNITY raising money for the Winnipeg Harvest Food Bank.
By partnering with Power 97, Winnipeg’s number one rock station, we received air time for 3 weeks leading up to the 5th Annual Hockey Day in the Winnipeg Sponge Hockey tournament.
The sold out tournament is a day filled with hockey action and delicious Molson Canadian Lager sold in the beer garden located in the Melrose Community Centre
Not only did we raise money through beer garden sales, additional dollars were raised through 50/50 draws, and sponge hockey team’s registration fee;  Molson MDF also donated $2,500 to Winnipeg Harvest. A total of $6,670 was raised for the Winnipeg Harvest Food Bank!

The Molson Canadian Sponge Hockey tournament after party took place down the street at the Henderson Draft House where we announced the winning teams and awarded prizes.   All in all a great Canadian Day!! See below for some highlights from PowerTV.  Cheers Tracey and MolsonCaroleB
