Anheuser-Busch Stalls Beer Productions for Disaster Relief Efforts

0  comments

Anheuser-Busch, Budweiser’s brewing company halts their usual operations to make way for providing disaster relief efforts to the victims of the devastating storm, Harvey. Budweiser’s brewers are no strangers to helping out people in need, and so they didn’t think twice about contributing to the relief efforts being sent to the victims and survivors.

The brewing company has been donating over 76 million cans of drinking water since 1988. Anheuser-Busch’s VP of Community Affairs shared,

The Cartersville location is our designated brewery for the emergency water program—it’s something we’re very proud of.”

When Anheuser-Busch isn’t busy providing support for disaster relief operations, they produce over 100 million barrels of beer yearly. The brewery is also widely known for its famed beer brands like Bud Light, Budweiser, Busch, and Michelob. This time, they shut down beer production at Cartersville, Georgia to make way for producing and shipping cans of drinking water. In fact, they have already sent over 155,000 cans of drinking water to Red Cross shelters situated in Arlington, Texas, and Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The cans of water will be distributed amongst the victims especially in areas where water is the most necessary.

Anheuser-Busch contributed over 2 million cans of emergency drinking water for the communities that suffered from natural disasters in 2016. Among the calamity survivors, they were able to help include those who were hit by the Louisiana floods, Hurricane Matthew, and the wildfires in California.

Sarah Schilling, brewmaster of the brewery’s Cartersville branch adds,

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. Putting our production and logistics strengths to work by providing safe, clean drinking water is the best way we can help in these situations.

Philanthropic companies like Anheuser-Busch are what our world needs today, especially when natural calamities and even personal differences break us apart. Kudos for your dedication to help and deliver a positive difference in the society!
