Bueno Beverage Company helps the American Red Cross distribute over 50,000 cans of drinking water to those impacted by SQF Fire

VISALIA – Last week Bueno Beverage and Anheuser-Busch lent a hand to Tulare County communities expected to be impacted by the SQF Complex fire.

On Sept. 1, Anheuser-Bush delivered 22 pallets of more than 50,000 cans of emergency drinking water to the Bueno Beverage Company plant in Visalia. Bueno Beverage went on to distribute them the next day. The American Red Cross and Bueno Beverage will partner to help distribute the water to those in need.

The water has been sourced from Anheuser-Busch’s brewery in Cartersville, Georgia/Fort Collins, Colorado which periodically pauses beer production to can drinking water and be ready to help communities in times of disaster.
