Employees and Community Case Study:
Molson Coors Canada Volunteer Program (MCCVP)
Since 1786, seven generations of Molson family members have ensured that the principles of quality and community involvement instilled by John Molson continue to guide the company today. The Molson Coors Canada Volunteer Program (MCCVP) officially launched in 2006. It embodies John Molson’s belief that employee volunteering can bring benefits to the company, its employees and the communities where we live and work. The MCCVP provides a paid day off work for employees to spend participating in a team-based volunteer activity involving 5 or more Molson Coors employees.
Through the MCCVP, Molson Coors Canada employees are supporting hundreds of organizations in communities across Canada with skilled volunteering. In 2009, 500 employees volunteered for 46 projects/events nationwide, with 3,700 hours contributed to communities across Canada.
During 2010’s April Month of Action, 900 employees participated in 33 projects/events across Canada. They volunteered a total of 3,700 hours to organizations including Feed Nova Scotia, Action Nouvelle Vie, Habitat for Humanity, Heat and Stroke Foundation, Partners in Project Green, Salvation Army, Winnipeg Harvest, Calgary Interfaith Foodbank, Easter Seals Camp Horizon, and Greater Vancouver Food Bank. In addition, the Molson Coors Canada Donations Fund contributed $51,000 through the MCCVP during the Month of Action.
Molson Coors Canada is a proud participant in Volunteer Canada’s Corporate Council on Volunteering.
Thank you to the wonderful Molson Coors Crew. Your Crew has maintained their reputation here at Camp as an incredibly hard working team full of exceptional people. It is such a pleasure to host you here at Camp and we can’t thank you enough for all of your hard work and effort.
Anna Garcia, Easter Seals Camp
The Molson Coors employees have been amazing supporters of the Calgary Food Bank through the donation of funds and volunteer time. They are a fun and enthusiastic work crew. Without the support of companies such as Molson Coors Canada, the Food Bank could not operate.
