Canned water delivered to flood victims


Anheuser-Busch is delivering more than 100,000 cans of emergency drinking water to communities in Kentucky impacted by severe flooding.

The donation of emergency drinking water will be delivered to Anheuser-Busch wholesaler partners, Perry Distributors in Hazard, KY and Kentucky Eagle in Lexington, KY who will work alongside the American Red Cross and local emergency management agencies to distribute the resources to those in need.

The clean, safe drinking water was produced at Anheuser-Busch’s Cartersville, GA and Fort Collins, CO breweries which periodically pause 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. 

Most recently, Anheuser-Busch also delivered 25 truckloads – nearly 1.3 million cans – of emergency drinking water to support local communities in Texas facing water shortages as a result of a severe winter storm and freezing conditions.
