COORS SHIPS DRINKING WATER TO LOUISIANA AND FLORIDA

 COORS SHIPS DRINKING WATER TO LOUISIANA AND FLORIDA
 GOLDEN, Colo., Aug. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Coors Brewing Co. is


shipping nearly 80,000 quarts of fresh drinking water from its Golden facility to victims of Hurricane Andrew in South Florida and Louisiana.
 Six truckloads of the water, enough to provide nearly 20,000 people with drinking water for one day, will leave Colorado bound for American Red Cross distribution sites in the stricken states.
 "As soon as we saw the hurricane was headed for a U.S. landfall, we went on alert for water distribution," said Bob Weingarten, Southern Region director for Coors. "We knew there would be a need. Luckily, we have a disaster relief pain in place so we can act quickly to help these people."
 To bottle the water, Coors converts its quart beer bottling line to water. The bottles have special labels indicating that they contain pure drinking water. This same process allowed Coors to ship water to victims of Hurricane Hugo and the San Francisco earthquake.
 "The Red Cross has been amazing in its mobilization and organization of relief efforts," said Weingarten. "Because of their skills, relief comes much faster."
