MIAMI & DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits (“Southern Glazer’s”) – the world's pre-eminent distributor of beverage alcohol – announced the launch of its VolunCheers Ambassador Program, designed to further drive local participation in volunteer activity across all markets where Southern Glazer’s operates. The program, comprised of 77 volunteer ambassadors spanning 44 U.S. markets, plus the District of Columbia, Canada, and the Caribbean, coincides with the celebration of the one-year anniversary of the launch of the Company’s enterprise-wide employee volunteering and giving portal, VolunCheers Online.

Since the inception of VolunCheers Online through June 2019, Southern Glazer’s employees across the United States and parts of Canada have created more than 200 volunteer events, logged more than 12,350 volunteer hours, and given $55,500 in donations.

VolunCheers Ambassadors have been hand-selected by local leaders based on their passion for and experience in leading volunteer activities in their respective markets. Ambassadors will leverage VolunCheers Online to organize and promote local volunteer efforts, drive participation in national volunteer campaigns, and share best practices for volunteer engagement within their communities.

“Our team’s commitment to giving back is unparalleled,” said Wayne E. Chaplin, Chief Executive Officer, Southern Glazer’s. “The VolunCheers Ambassador Program will recognize Southern Glazer’s employee dedication to charitable impact and expand participation in local and company-wide efforts. The significant expansion of VolunCheers Online through the ambassador program is possible thanks to the large number of Southern Glazer’s employees, who are leading change in their communities.”

VolunCheers Online enables Southern Glazer’s employees to create, share, and search for volunteer and fundraising opportunities. Users can connect with colleagues who share similar charitable passions, log individual volunteer hours, and donate to 501(c)(3) organizations of their choice.
