MillerCoors to donate 200,000 cans of water to those impact by Hurricane Florence

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- MillerCoors will be donating 200,000 cans of water to those impacted by Hurricane Florence.

In partnership with American Red Cross and area food banks, the water cans will be distributed at the Red Cross and community shelters.

“We hope this water donation provides some relief and comfort to residents and first responders in Hurricane Florence’s path,” said Karina Diehl, MillerCoors Senior Director for National Community Affairs. “It’s a MillerCoors priority to do our part in helping the communities where our consumers, employees and distributors call home.”

In total, MillerCoors will donate 200,000 cans, coming on 80 pallets. Each case is a 12 pack filled with 12 ounces of water in each can. The water cans will be shipped from the MillerCoors brewery in Shenandoah, Va.

Earlier this year, MillerCoors donated 25,000 cans of water to residents in southern Iowa impacted by a boil order and 50,000 cans of drinking water to California residents impacted by wildfires. MillerCoors made similar donations of more than 550,000 cans of water to Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico and the Caribbean from Hurricane Harvey, Irma, and Maria.
