 ANHEUSER-BUSCH CHARITABLE FOUNDATION, INC.,
 DONATES $1 MILLION TO RED CROSS TO AID IN HURRICANE RELIEF
 ST. LOUIS, Mo. /PRNewswire/ -- The Anheuser-Busch Charitable Foundation, Inc., will donate $1 million to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund and Anheuser-Busch Companies, Inc. (NYSE: BUD), will provide additional support to the humanitarian agency's relief efforts in the wake of Hurricane Andrew, it was announced today.
 "Anheuser-Busch and the Red Cross share a long tradition of reaching out to people in need, and the people of south Florida and the Gulf Coast clearly need all the help we can give them right now," said August A. Busch III, chairman of the board and president of Anheuser-Busch Companies, Inc.
 The $1 million donation will support relief operations within those parts of Florida and the Gulf Coast that are designated as disaster areas in the aftermath of Hurricane Andrew, as well as in other areas where the Red Cross's help may be needed.
 In addition to the $1 million cash donation from the Anheuser-Busch Charitable Foundation, Inc., Busch said Anheuser-Busch Companies, Inc., is also participating in the relief effort. The company's brewing subsidiary, Anheuser-Busch, Inc., has already shipped more than 200,000 cans of drinking water from its Jacksonville brewery to relief centers in south Florida, and will make more water available to aid storm victims in Florida and along the Gulf Coast. The Red Cross is coordinating the distribution of the water to emergency shelters and mobile feeding operations throughout the disaster area.
 Busch said the company also will donate food from its Campbell Taggart baking subsidiary and clothing from its Promotional Products Group.
 "While our obvious priority is to help relieve the tremendous human suffering caused by the storm," Busch said, "we also stand ready to address some of the environmental damage caused by the hurricane. Wildlife rescue teams at Busch Gardens-Tampa and at our Sea World parks in Orlando and San Antonio are standing by to assist marine animals, birds or other wildlife that may have been stranded or injured by the storm."
