The spirit of volunteerism is a part of the culture at Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Inc. That spirit is alive
and strong with our Montreal based employees who participated in their first large-scale volunteer event a couple weeks ago.
The Défi Sportif is an international event that assembles athletes from the elite to newcomers, with all types of disabilities. This year the Défi sportif brought together over 4,000 athletes from over 15 countries for 7 days of athletic competition. The week long event culminated with the wheelchair rugby finals with Ontario Thunders taking the win.
GMCR sent more than 20 employees to volunteer at the event for the entire week. For some of these employees this was their first CAFE (or volunteerism) event! The GMCR Canada marketing team also got in on the volunteering by refereeing one of the high school soccer competitions. It is great to see the commitment to volunteerism from all our employees sites.
And on top of sending employees, we donated all the coffee, tea and hot chocolate required to fuel the event’s athletes and volunteers!
Congratulations for all the athletes and volunteers!
