Molson Coors is donating fresh water to help truckers cut back on stops during the COVID-19 pandemic
Molson Coors is donating safe drinking water to truck drivers in the U.S. and Canada, according to a blog post by the community.
The company has donated 154,000 cans of water to help keep truckers safe, limiting their need to stop for supplies during the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak.
50,000 cans went to Werner Enterprises for distribution to its terminals in Florida, Georgia and Texas, reported OnMilwaukee.
The remaining 104,000 cans are going to breweries in: Milwaukee; Albany, Georgia; Elkton, Virginia; Fort Worth, Texas; Golden, Colorado; Montreal; and Toronto. The cans will be distributed to more than 100 other trucking companies.
"Truck drivers are the unsung heroes keeping America nourished and our supply chains moving during a time of great need," said Michael Nordman, Molson Coors' community affairs director. "While many around the country are sheltering in place, truck drivers are working long hours away from their families to keep our stores and pantries stocked."
Since the outbreak reached the U.S. and Canada, Molson Coors has also given drivers food and drink, and clean, sanitized bathrooms to help cut down on required stops.
"The company also recently donated 50,000 cans of water to the Salvation Army Intermountain Division in Denver, Colorado, to assist with the organization's COVID-19 relief efforts. The donations are part of the company's broader response to the pandemic, which also included a $1 million donation pledged last week to the United States Bartenders' Guild."
