Hurricane Dorian took a large toll on the Bahamas, and Molson Coors is doing their part to help out.

The brewing company is donating 50,000 cans of water to the island.

"Distributing safe drinking water to those affected by Hurricane Dorian is critical to recovery efforts in the Bahamas and as such, Molson Coors is proud to provide this essential resource," said Sergey Yeskov, president and chief executive officer of Molson Coors International. "Through the donation of water cans, we aim to provide comfort and relief to Bahamian islands."

The water will be shipped from the MilerCoors brewery in Virginia and is expected to arrive in Florida next week. From there, the water will be shuttled to the Bahamas and distributed to residents.

MillerCoors launched its water program in 2017, providing more than 2 million cans.
