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 Colorado impacted by the recent wildfires.
The donation of emergency drinking water will be delivered to Anheuser-Busch wholesaler partner, Eagle Rock Distributing Co. of Colorado in Denver, CO who will work alongside the American Red Cross to distribute the resources to those in need.
Anheuser-Busch, Eagle Rock Distributing of Colorado and Super Coffee will also be donating 1,700 cans of Ghost Energy and 4,300 bottles of Super Coffee to support the staff and volunteers involved in the ongoing recovery and rebuilding efforts in Boulder County.
“The American Red Cross is thankful for Anheuser-Busch’s generous donation, which enables us to quickly distribute life-sustaining drinking water for families impacted by the most devastating wildfires in Colorado’s history,” said Elizabeth Penniman, Vice President of Communications at the Red Cross.
“We can always count on Anheuser-Busch to be by our side supporting communities in crisis.”
The clean, safe drinking water was produced locally at Anheuser-Busch’s Fort Collins, CO brewery which periodically pauses beer production throughout the year to can emergency drinking water to help communities in times of disaster.
“Colorado is such an important community to our company and more than 1,000 colleagues who call it home and our thoughts are with all those impacted by the devastating wildfires, “said Gene Bocis, Senior General Manager of the Anheuser-Busch Fort Collins Brewery.
“Our team in Fort Collins is humbled to be able to leverage our production capabilities to provide this critical donation to our friends and neighbours and we hope it provides a bit of relief as they recover.”
