Anheuser-Busch to deliver cans of drinking water to tornado victims
BATON ROUGE – Anheuser-Busch announced Wednesday that the company is partnering with the American Red Cross to deliver drinking water to victims recovering from last week’s tornadoes.
Anheuser-Busch said its Georgia brewery will deliver more than 50,000 cans of emergency water to the Louisiana Capital Area Chapter of the American Red Cross.
The water is expected to arrive between 9:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. Thursday.
“Anheuser-Busch has a longstanding history of supporting the Red Cross in their disaster relief efforts,” said Kevin Fahrenkrog, Sr. General Manager of Anheuser-Busch’s Cartersville Brewery. “We are proud to be part of that tradition of providing water and supplies to those affected by natural disasters nationwide.”
Earlier this year, the company delivered more than 50,000 cans of clean water to Flint, Michigan to help residents during the city’s drinking water crisis.
