Anheuser-Busch deliver emergency canned drinking water
At the request of the American Red Cross, Anheuser-Busch is delivering one truckload – more than 50,000 cans – of emergency drinking water to support local communities in western Kentucky impacted by the recent tornadoes.
The donation of emergency drinking water will be delivered to Anheuser-Busch wholesaler partner, Golden Eagle Distributing in Paducah, KY who will work alongside the American Red Cross to distribute the resources to those in need at their Calvert City, KY relief operations.
The clean, safe drinking water was produced at Anheuser-Busch’s Cartersville, GA brewery which 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 90 million cans of water to US communities affected by natural disasters and other crises.
This year alone, Anheuser-Busch donated more than 4 million cans of emergency drinking water to communities and volunteer fire departments across 49 states in support of ongoing relief efforts – including 100,000 cans of water to support Kentucky communities impacted by severe flooding earlier this spring.
