MillerCoors supplies canned water to tornado victims
Dayton, Ohio-based Bonbright Distributors is teaming up with MillerCoors to bring in more than 50,000 12-ounce cans of fresh drinking water for free distribution in the Dayton area, following the devastating tornadoes that hit the region.
Twenty pallets of water, each with 105 24-packs of 12-ounce cans, will be distributed from Bonbright’s keg-sales office at 1 Arena Park Drive adjacent to the University of Dayton Arena. A large portion of the water will then be delivered to The FoodBank of Dayton on Monday for free distribution through the agency’s channels, said Bonbright CEO, Brock Anderson.
MillerCoors has donated fresh water in 12-ounce cans that it usually uses for beer to hurricane relief and other natural disasters. The Virginia brewery is especially equipped for this type of operation, Anderson said.
Tami Garrison, community affairs manager at MillerCoors, said: “In the face of devastation, we’re doing our part to supply Miami Valley, Ohio tornado victims and first responders with essential clean water. Through the donation of the water cans, we aim to provide comfort and relief to help the community in their time of need.”
