Anheuser-Busch has donated more than 300,000 cans of emergency drinking water to those stuck in Florida facing Hurricane Irma.
Deliveries arrived Friday to Fort Pierce, Orlando and Sarasota. The Red Cross will deliver the cans to those in need. The brewery switched from canning beer to canning water on Labor Day to help prepare for the disastrous hurricane set to strike Florida.
“We are grateful to be in a position to help communities affected by natural disasters by putting our production and logistics strengths to work,” said Bill Bradley, Anheuser-Busch’s vice president for community affairs, via news release.
The brewery did the same thing in Texas for the victims of Hurricane Harvey. It also shipped drinking water in 2016 to communities hit by natural disasters, including the California wildfires, floods in Louisiana and Hurricane Matthew.
