CHICAGO, Aug. 27, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Molson Coors Beverage Company (NYSE: TAP; TSX: TPX) is donating 200,000 cans of water to the American Red Cross to help support recovery efforts in communities along the Louisiana and Texas coasts that were hardest hit by Hurricane Laura.
"In times of distress and crisis, Molson Coors believes that access to safe drinking water is critical," said Michael Nordman, Senior Manager of Community Affairs for Molson Coors. "We are mobilizing quickly to ensure that water is available to first responders and residents as they deal with the aftermath of this terrible storm."
The water cans will be shipped from the Molson Coors Shenandoah brewery in Elkton, Va., to locations identified as most in need by the Red Cross.
Molson Coors launched its water donation program in 2017 in partnership with Broomfield, Colo.-based Ball Corporation, which together have committed to providing more than 2 million cans of water to the Red Cross to help communities affected by disasters. The water is canned at the Molson Coors brewery in Trenton, Ohio, and stored in its Shenandoah brewery. Graphic Packaging International donated the 12-pack cartons in which the cans are packaged.
