Chilliwack – In the wake of heavy flooding and mudslides in British Columbia, Molson Coors is assisting disaster relief efforts through a $10,000 donation to the Canadian Red Cross in British Columbia and another $10,000 donation to the Chilliwack chapter of the Salvation Army.
As the municipality of Chilliwack is the home of Molson Coors’s Fraser Valley Brewery, local employees have been mobilized to help local officials as additional manpower. The brewery donated 100,000 tonnes of spent grain to farmers in our community to help feed relocated livestock.
“In such hard times for citizens of British Columbia, it is our responsibility to show the example and prioritize the community. For this reason, I would like to recognize the hard work of our employees in Chilliwack to help those in need these past few days,” said David Hamel, General Manager of Operations for Western Canada at Molson Coors. “We want to assure the municipality of Chilliwack and the surrounding communities that Molson Coors will do its part in order to deploy workers and resources immediately in order to assist in the disaster relief effort.”
