Anheuser-Busch spotlights its emergency drinking water program while pledging to do more through new commitment
January 26, 2018 – New York, NY – Today, Budweiser released its
Super Bowl LII commercial showcasing Anheuser-Busch employees, who
together over the past 30 years have helped provide over 79 million
cans of clean drinking water in response to natural disasters. The
commercial will be timed with a new company commitment to add a second
brewery to its emergency water program to increase its disaster relief
efforts by the end of the year.
Employees are the driving force behind the Anheuser-Busch emergency
water program, which is centralized in its Cartersville, GA brewery.
Together with the help of century-long partner, the American Red
Cross, they deliver safe, clean drinking water to cities affected by
natural disasters. In 2017 specifically, donations supported those in
Houston, Puerto Rico, California and Florida. The same production and
logistical capabilities used to can and deliver beer across the
country makes the company uniquely equipped to do its small part by
providing a vital necessity – clean drinking water.
