Thank You, Anheuser-Busch!

Hat/Tip To:
my brother, Bradley, who sent me this link from NBC News online.

From an article on NBC News online by Daniella Silva entitled:  Anheuser-Busch Halts Beer Production to Provide Water for Texas, Oklahoma Storm Victims we learn:  "Anheuser-Busch said it had stopped beer production at its Cartersville brewery in Georgia late Wednesday night to produce 50,000 cans of water for the American Red Cross" to be used "for those affected by a deadly bout of historic flooding and storms in Texas and Oklahoma". 

"About 2,000 cases, each carrying 24 cans, are en route to communities in Texas and Oklahoma, he added. The water is expected to reach those areas within the next few days." 

What a fantastic idea.  

Thank you so much Anheuser-Busch for this great community service in reaching out to help the people affected by the severe water in Texas and Oklahoma.

In the article by Daniella Siva we learn that this is not the first time the giant brewery has done this:  "The Cartersville brewery produces cans of emergency relief water a few times a year, Haas said, partnering with the American Red Cross to provide to places in need within the United States"

While the storm did not affect my wife and I or our house personally in Houston, as a Texan I want to say God Bless You, Anheuser-Busch.
