Anheuse Busch water
The company began canning water for relief efforts in the late '80s.

Anheuser-Busch has delivered two truckloads of water — more than 100,000 cans — to areas impacted by Hurricane Idalia, after a request from the American Red Cross to assist with recovery efforts.

The cans of water were delivered to Tri-Eagle Sales in Midway, who will work with the American Red Cross to distribute the water to those in need.

“The American Red Cross is deeply grateful to Anheuser-Busch and Tri-Eagle Sales for their generous donation and delivery of drinking water after this severe hurricane,” said Lauren Ulrich, Executive Director of Operations Management and Logistics for the American Red Cross. “We appreciate the company’s ongoing support of our mission and feel fortunate to count you as a partner.”

The water was sourced at Anheuser-Busch’s brewery in Georgia. That brewery, along with the brewery in Fort Collins, Colorado, periodically pause beer production to can emergency drinking water to aid communities recovering from disaster.

Anheuser-Busch has partnered with the American Red Cross since 1906 to support disaster relief efforts. Its emergency drinking water program was established in 1988. The company’s wholesaler partners have provided more than 90 million cans of water to U.S. communities affected by natural disasters and other crises.

Last year, Anheuser-Busch donated more than 3 million cans of emergency drinking water to communities in volunteer fire departments in 49 states.

      Doesn’t matter, you MAGA chuds will scream “WOKE WOKE WOKE” about it regardless, and then pump a few rounds into a few cases to make your “point.”

        Great point there Smiff,
        I agree Florida should have stopped the homer testical Bud Lite Company from being able to take advantage of the devistation and pushing their woke gay-water on an unsuspecting public.
        There is a clear and present danger of their gay woke water of turning Florida’s sparcely populated rural areaa population into homer testical men and women when they drink it.
        Good looking out Smiff I always knew you were not really a Dook 4 Brains Leftist.

          Hi Earl, I assume you’ve seen that video of Kid Rock shooting up a case of Bud Light (before he was seen drinking a Bud Light shortly after).

          You should find a gun like that and shoot yourself in the face with it. Your pedo life is worthless and the world will better off with you feeding worms.

            Good afternoon sick little man
            You are a sick little man. I just got off the phone with the Warden where you are waiting on Death Row and he has agreed to cut off your Internet access.
            Oh BTW I, Earl Pitts American, asked the Warden to tell you your Internet access will be cut off soon …. but not to tell you when.
            Its my revenge for you being a buttholeeo. You will go even more cray cray as the hours, days, maybe even weeks or months roll by. Knowing that I, Earl Pitts American, have successfully reached into your cell to slap you around each and every day.
            Thank you Sick Little Man,
