Local brewery employees help prepare kids for school

SHARONVILLE, OH (FOX19) - A local brewery is helping in the effort to prepare young kids for school.

MillerCoors Brewery in Trenton, Ohio partnered with United Way of Greater Cincinnati to host an all-employee volunteer event on Tuesday. Around 475 MillerCoors employees made educational toys for 'Every Child Succeeds', a home visitation program for first-time moms.

The toys made by employees will be used in the 'Parents as Teachers' effort, which aims to better prepare more children for school. Organizers of the program try to do so by helping young moms identify teachable lessons in everyday life.

The MillerCoors Brewery event was held at the Sharonville Convention Center, located on Chester Road.
