Anheuser-Busch pauses beer production to send water to Harvey victims
Beer production was halted at the Anheuser-Busch brewery in Cartersville, Georgia on Monday and trucks were sent out with emergency deliveries — truckloads of clean drinking water forvictims.
The first shipment arrived at the American Red Cross in Baton Rouge, Louisiana on Monday, and two more shipments were sent to Arlington, Texas.
The cans of water — more than 155,000 of them in total — were sent courtesy of the Anheuser-Busch emergency drinking water program. "Putting our production and logistics strengths to work by providing safe, clean drinking water is the best way we can help in these situations," Bill Bradley, Anheuser-Busch's Vice President for Community Affairs, said in a statement.
