Anheuser-Busch sending 150,000 cans of water to flood victims in Missouri, Oklahoma

Posted: Updated:

Anheuser-Busch's brewery in Cartersville, Georgia, has paused production to make drinking water to send to people devastated by flooding in Missouri and Oklahoma.

Anheuser-Busch said in a news release that three truckloads -- more than 150,000 cans -- of emergency drinking water are being rushed to distributors in Sedalia, Missouri, and Muskogee, Oklahoma. They'll work with the Red Cross to get the canned water to flood-ravaged areas.

“For over 30 years, we have worked with the American Red Cross to provide emergency drinking water to our neighbors during times of need,” said Anheuser-Busch Vice President of Community Affairs, Bill Bradley. “Applying our production and logistics expertise to deliver clean, safe drinking water is the best way we can lend a hand in our communities during these unimaginable situations.”
