Anheuser-Busch Delivering Additional 50,000 Cans of Emergency Drinking Water to Support Flood Relief Efforts for Southern Tornadoes and Storms


At the request of the American Red Cross, Anheuser-Busch has delivered one truckload – more than 50,000 cans – of emergency drinking water to support communities impacted by a series of tornadoes and storms that tore through several southern states recently. 

The drinking water was delivered to Anheuser-Busch wholesaler partner, Southern Beverage of Richland, MS, who worked alongside the Red Cross to distribute resources to those in need.  

“The American Red Cross is thankful for Anheuser-Busch’s generous donation, which helps power our relief efforts for families impacted by the destructive tornadoes and storms across the South,” said Josett Valdez, Interim Division Fundraising Vice President for the Southeast and Caribbean Division at the American Red Cross.  

The clean, safe drinking water is sourced from the Anheuser-Busch brewery in Cartersville, Georgia, which alongside the Fort Collins, Colorado brewery periodically pauses beer production throughout the year to can emergency drinking water and help communities in times of disaster in partnership with the Red Cross. 

Anheuser-Busch has a longstanding tradition of providing support for disaster relief efforts in partnership with the Red Cross, dating back to 1906. Since the inception of the emergency drinking water program in 1988, Anheuser-Busch and its wholesaler partners have provided more than 90 million cans of water to U.S. communities affected by natural disasters and other crises. 

Last year alone, Anheuser-Busch donated more than 3 million cans of emergency drinking water to communities and volunteer fire departments across 49 states in support of ongoing relief efforts.
