Anheuser-Busch delivers 50,000 cans of water to Guam
At the request of the American Red Cross, Anheuser-Busch delivered one truckload – more than 50,000 cans – of emergency drinking water to support local communities in the US Territory of Guam recovering from Typhoon Mawar, which heavily impacted the region with intense winds and flooding rain.
The donation of emergency drinking water was delivered to Anheuser-Busch wholesaler partner, Ambros Inc. in Tamuning, Guam, who worked alongside the American Red Cross to distribute the resources to the residents of the island.
“The American Red Cross is grateful for Anheuser-Busch’s generous donation of drinking water, which is critical to our relief efforts to support families reeling from Typhoon Mawar in Guam,” said David Staszak, division fundraising vice president for the American Red Cross.
The water is sourced from the Anheuser-Busch brewery in Ft. Collins, Colorado, which alongside the Cartersville, Georgia brewery periodically pauses beer production throughout the year to can emergency drinking water and help communities in times of disaster in partnership with the American Red Cross.
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 U.S. communities affected by natural disasters and other crises.
In 2022, Anheuser-Busch donated more than 3 million cans of emergency drinking water to communities and volunteer fire departments across 49 states in support of ongoing relief efforts.
