Albany brewery sends bottled water to Gulf

August 31, 2005
From Miller Brewing Co.

Albany, Ga. --- Miller Brewing Company announced Wednesday it is sending six truckloads of emergency drinking water — more than 80,000 32-ounce bottles — to help Hurricane Katrina victims in Louisiana and Mississippi .

Miller is coordinating with relief workers, state agencies and its distributors and suppliers to provide drinking water bottled from its Albany, Ga., brewery to communities hardest hit by the hurricane.

The first truckloads of water left Albany last night for Baton Rouge, La., and Camp Shelby in Hattiesburg, Miss., where the water will be distributed to those most in need.

The additional truckloads of water are expected to ship within days, as Miller and its area distributors are able to communicate and finalize arrangements with the affected communities.
