Miller sends water to hurricane victims

September 7, 2004

Albany- Relief for Hurricane Frances victims is pouring into Florida and that includes water from Albany.

The Miller Brewing plant is sending five truckloads of water. One truck load went to Orlando. These boxes are headed to Jacksonville. Sending bottled water is something Miller often does for disaster victims.

"We have our employees, our suppliers donate their time and the materials that we use and the trucking service also donates because it's the right thing to do," said Plant Manager Chris Thelan. "People are really in need at this point in time."

The trucks will carry more than 67,200 bottles of drinking water to the hurricane victims.
