Molson Coors announced on Monday that it was donating over 150,000 cans of drink water to truck drivers across the U.S.

The company said it had donated 154,000 cans of fresh drinking water to truck drivers across the U.S. and Canada in order to minimize the number of stops they need to make during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The company sent 104,000 cans to its breweries in Georgia, Virginia, Texas, Colorado, Montreal, Toronto, and Milwaukee to be distributed to drivers.

“Truck drivers are the unsung heroes keeping America nourished and our supply chains moving during a time of great need,” says Michael Nordman, Molson Coors’ community affairs director. “While many around the country are sheltering in place, truck drivers are working long hours away from their families to keep our stores and pantries stocked.”

According to Molson Coors, drivers in the United States and Canada make shipments that carry nearly 16.5 million cases of beer and other drinks.
