MillerCoors joins other breweries to send clean water to Texas after Harvey

Milwaukee’s biggest brewer is joining other beer makers in sending clean canned water to the Hurricane Harvey relief efforts in Texas.

The brewery said in a news release it would be sending 50,000 cans of drinking water to be distributed by the American Red Cross through Revolver, a MillerCoors brewery about 275 miles northwest of Houston.

MillerCoors said in the release it is also donating “at least” $25,000 to the Red Cross.

“Providing clean water to communities enduring a crisis will aid in recovery and hopefully give some sense of comfort to those in need,” said Karina Diehl, MillerCoors’ director of community affairs, in a statement.

MillerCoors told TODAY’S TMJ4 in an emailed statement that its water program just launched in July, and the first recipients of their clean water were in southeast Wisconsin and northern Illinois following the heavy flooding near the Fox River.

One of MillerCoors' biggest competitor, Anheuser-Busch, also sent 100,000 cans of clean water to Texas.
