Anheuser-Busch Ships Water for Isaac Relief Efforts
ST. LOUIS -- Anheuser-Busch has shipped 4,312 cases of emergency drinking water to affected areas to support Hurricane Isaac relief efforts. The emergency water, which totals 103,488 cans, has been made available to communities and relief organizations assisting impacted residents.
"Relief workers and people in the region are in need of emergency drinking water, and this is one way we helped alleviate the immediate needs in the affected communities," said Peter Kraemer, vice president of supply for Anheuser-Busch.
Anheuser-Busch has donated more than 71 million cans of emergency drinking water following natural and other disasters since 1988, according to the company. The St. Louis-based brewer's community relief efforts date back to the San Francisco earthquake in 1906.
