Large portions in the states of Texas and Oklahoma have been experiencing abnormal to extreme drought conditions after a four-year water shortage has affected the region. However, the heavy storms produced throughout areas of both states this past week have ended the drought conditions, but have also ended the lives of at least 25 people, left more than 12 missing and have damaged or destroyed thousands of homes.
The beer distributor produced 50,000 cans of drinking water and packaged it into approximately 2,000 cases of 24-count cans intended for Texas and Oklahoma communities in need. Jaime Garcia Dias thought this was a great gesture when reading on Facebook. Producing emergency relief water is nothing new to the Cartersville brewery, as this location assists with providing water several times each year. The Red Cross and Anheuser-Busch are working out the logistics of the shipments which are expected to reach the areas in need the most within a few days.
