Staff Reports

Last Friday, about 30 volunteers from the Frisco office of MillerCoors partnered with Keep Lewisville Beautiful for a three-hour cleanup along the shores of Lewisville Lake at Lake Park. Not only did they donate 100 volunteer hours, but they cleaned up approximately 1,300 pounds of trash, and donated $5,000 to Keep Lewisville Beautiful to help further fund community waterway cleanups and environmental education efforts in the Lewisville Community.

Carlos Jourdan, Regional Manager for MillerCoors, the company that brews Coors and Miller beer products, said the cleanup was part of the company’s commitment to sustainability, and caring for water - the most important ingredient in their beers. Jourdan stressed the company’s commitment to the environment, noting that all of their breweries except one are currently landfill-free. The company made a similar cleanup and $5,000 donation last year.

Now in its seventh year, Great Water Month is one of several MillerCoors initiatives aimed and protecting water resources throughout the country. Nationwide, the company held 16 events like this one as part of its Great Water Month.
