Anheuser-Busch send cans of emergency water to Texas
Anheuser-Busch is delivering more than 150,000 cans of emergency drinking water to support local communities in Texas facing water shortages as a result of severe winter storm and freezing conditions.
The brewer is working closely with its local teams – including at its Houston brewery – to ensure colleagues and partners in the region are safe.
The donation of emergency drinking water will be delivered to Anheuser-Busch wholesaler partners, Ben E. Keith Company in Kerrville, TX and L&F Distributors in Corpus Christi, TX who will work alongside the American Red Cross and other community organisations to distribute the resources to those in need.
The clean, safe drinking water was produced at Anheuser-Busch’s Fort Collins, CO brewery which, alongside the company’s Cartersville, GA brewery, periodically pauses beer production throughout the year to can emergency drinking water to help communities in times of disaster.
Anheuser-Busch has a longstanding tradition of providing support for disaster relief efforts in partnership with the American Red Cross, dating back to 1906.
Since the inception of the emergency drinking water program in 1988, Anheuser-Busch and its wholesaler partners have provided more than 86 million cans of water to U.S. communities affected by natural disasters and other crises.
Last year alone, Anheuser-Busch donated more than three million cans to communities and volunteer fire departments across 43 states in support of ongoing relief efforts including wildfire and hurricane recovery on the West and Gulf coasts.
