A-B Gives Water for W. Va., Ky. Relief

Anheuser-Busch is providing 8,624 cases of emergency drinking water — or 206,976 cans — to the American Red Cross for their use in relief efforts associated with a chemical spill on the Elk River near Charleston, W.Va., and weather related concerns impacting the water supply of residents in Floyd County, Ky.

Four trucks loaded with emergency drinking water from Cartersville, Ga., will be sent to three Anheuser-Busch wholesalers for distribution to their local American Red Cross operations. The American Red Cross will then get the water where it's most needed. The Anheuser-Busch wholesalers are Proud Eagle Distributing in South Charleston, W.Va.; Eagle Distributing Company in Huntington, W.Va. and Perry Distributors in Prestonsburg, Ky.  

"People in the region are in need of drinking water, and this is one way Anheuser-Busch can help our friends and neighbors," says Peter Kraemer, vice president of Supply and head brewmaster for Anheuser-Busch.
