On Wednesday, May 29th, Bellavance Beverage will be delivering a shipment of canned water to the volunteer firefighters at Brookline Fire Department in Brookline, NH. Bellavance Beverage Co. is a beverage distributor located in Hooksett, NH who has been proudly serving Southern NH retailers a focused portfolio of quality beers and beverages since 1902.
This delivery is in response to Anheuser-Busch’s Emergency Drinking Water Program, which has partnered with the National Volunteer Fire Council and has pledged to donate 1 million cans of clean drinking water to Volunteer Fire Departments across the United States in 2019.
Anheuser-Busch’s disaster relief program, where emergency drinking water is donated to communities in need in partnership with the American Red Cross, is one effort that has been especially close to the hearts of all of us in the Anheuser-Busch family. Since the inception of the program in 1988, more than 80 million cans of clean drinking water have been donated to U.S. communities affected by natural disasters.
Anheuser-Busch wanted to help more communities across the country, so they’ve been listening to experts in the firefighting space – including the National Volunteer Fire Council and Congressional Fire Safety Institute – on the issues they are facing and understanding their biggest challenges. This has led to evolving the emergency drinking water program to support volunteer firefighters battling wildfires across the country in advance of wildfire season.
Hydration is mission critical for firefighters and by expanding the program to donate clean water to volunteer firefighters nationwide, the aim is to support them as they heroically protect their communities. We look forward to continuing working side by side to build a Better World together.
