Local Volunteer Fire Department to Receive Emergency Drinking Water Donation from Anheuser-Busch

The Laytonsville District Volunteer Fire Department will be receiving more than 80 cases of canned water that will be provided by Anheuser-Busch InBev and Montgomery Eagle, a Gaithersburg-based beer distribution company, through an initiative in partnership with the National Volunteer Fire Council.  Press release below:

“Anheuser-Busch InBev (AB InBev) and Montgomery Eagle, the Gaithersburg-based AB InBev marketing company, in partnership with the National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC), announced today their initiative to provide the Laytonsville District Volunteer Fire Department with cases of canned emergency drinking water.  The donation is part of AB InBev’s commitment to deliver more than 2.5 million cans – more than ever before – to volunteer fire departments across the country this year in support of disaster preparedness and relief efforts. This AB InBev and Montgomery Eagle emergency drinking water initiative demonstrates the companies’ deep appreciation for their local first responders and communities.

More than two-thirds of America’s firefighters are volunteers who often serve on the frontlines with limited resources and staffing. First responders rely on clean drinking water to stay hydrated in times of need, but these departments often lack the budget necessary to supply this water. AB InBev and Montgomery Eagle’s emergency drinking water donation will help ensure Laytonsville’s volunteer firefighters are prepared for any potential crises.
“We’re proud to partner with AB InBev in its effort to ensure no fire department goes without the critical emergency provision that is safe drinking water,” Montgomery Eagle President Neal Katcef said. “When our Laytonsville firefighters put their lives on the line for our community, it’s important for us all to ensure they have the resources they need to do their jobs.”

AB InBev has a longstanding history of supporting disaster relief and preparedness efforts. In 1906, AB InBev launched its flagship emergency drinking water program and partnership with the American Red Cross. Since the 2019 collaboration between AB InBev, its wholesale partners, and the NVFC, AB InBev has donated more than 6.4 million cans of clean, safe
drinking water to more than 960 volunteer fire departments across 49 states. The emergency drinking water was sourced from Anheuser-Busch’s brewery in Cartersville, Georgia, which periodically pauses its beer production to can clean, safe drinking water in support of disaster relief and preparedness efforts nationwide.
