On a bright and sunny Tuesday morning, 160 Molson Coors employees came out to Sloan’s Lake in Denver ready to mulch, paint, and beautify the landscape.
Molson Coors, in partnership with Mile High United Way, had a companywide Day of Service on September 18, 2018. The headquarters shut down for the day in the spirit of comradery, teamwork, and service. Employees were more than excited to work together and make a difference in their local community.
“This is one of the largest Days of Service we’ve ever done. We hope it’s not the last time. We hope it’s only the first time,” remarked Christine White, Global Director of Business Continuity and Crisis Management at Molson Coors.
Lori Powell, Change Manager for Molson Coors, couldn’t agree more. “This is such a great opportunity for all of us to give back and support the Denver community. We’re getting out, as a team, for our community.”
This is the exact sentiment Mile High United Way takes when it comes to community. To live united means to stand together in service to our community, and it was an honor to partner with a company that believes in this mission too.
Molson Coors employees spent their morning mulching the grounds around Sloan’s Lake, painting the bridge and playground, and removing willows. In collaboration with Denver Parks and Recreation, Molson Coors employees worked tirelessly, and with such dedication, that the area around Sloan’s Lake was cleaned up in no time.
Mark Hunter, President and CEO of Molson Coors, loved being a part of the day’s activities alongside his team. “This day does three things. It gives us a sense of team. It gives us a sense of giving. And it makes a difference.”
As the day’s activities came to an end, everyone gathered together to celebrate all they had accomplished. Work Options for Women put together an amazing barbeque spread to congratulate everyone’s hard work, and Molson Coors made sure to bring everyone a beer.
“This is what we’re supposed to do. It’s a way to give to ourselves. It’s how we meet people within the company and build relationships. Mile High United Way has been a terrific partner to us, and what better way to give back than to our parks. Beer and parks are in our DNA at Molson Coors. Let’s all share a cool, refreshing Coors Light today,” noted Michelle Nettles, Chief People and Diversity Officer at Molson Coors.
Cheers Molson Coors! Thank you for your dedication to the community and ongoing partnership.
