Anheuser-Busch Stopped Production To Send Drinking Water To Hurricane Harvey Victims
In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, Anheuser-Busch has halted beer production at its Cartersville, Georgia brewery to provide cans of emergency drinking water to those affected by the storm that has caused at least five deaths and catastrophic flooding across Texas and parts of Louisiana since it made landfall last Friday.
While the beer company initially sent out 50,000 cans to the Baton Rouge Red Cross, Anheuser-Busch has now sent over 155,00 cans to flood-damaged areas,The Miami Heraldreported. The beer company expects over 100,000 more cans to arrive at the Red Cross in Arlington, Texas later this week, depending on road conditions.
"Throughout the year, we periodically pause beer production at our Cartersville, Georgia brewery to produce emergency canned drinking water so we are ready to help out communities across the country in times of crisis," Brewmaster Sarah Schilling from the Cartersville Brewery said, WXIA reported. "Putting our production and logistics strengths to work by providing safe, clean drinking water is the best way we can help in these situations."
This isn't the first time Anheuser-Busch has sent drinking water to help people in need.
