Busch donates canned water

Beer-maker Anheuser-Busch sent 155,000 cans of drinking water to Louisiana and Texas to assist those affected by Hurricane Harvey.

The Cartersville, Ga., Anheuser-Busch brewery regularly stops beer brewing to fill cans with drinking water. The company has provided emergency drinking water to people affected by natural disasters, providing more than 76 million cans since 1988. Last year, Anheuser-Busch shipped cans of water to those affected by Hurricane Matthew, floods in Louisiana and wildfires in California.

On Aug. 28, Anheuser-Busch sent the first shipment of canned water to the American Red Cross in Baton Rouge, La., Two more shipments will make their way to Arlington, Texas.

"Putting our production and logistics strengths to work by providing safe, clean drinking water is the best way we can help in these situations," said Bill Bradley,  vice president of community affairs.
