Ball Corporation, in partnership with the Oskar Blues Can’d Aid Foundation, is sending nearly 200,000 cans of water to areas of South Carolina affected by the recent floods. Oskar Blues Brewery in Brevard, North Carolina, is filling cans donated by Ball’s Rome, Georgia, facility with city drinking water to assist flood victims.
Assisting with flood relief efforts is not new to Oskar Blues and Ball. Colorado’s 2013 floods devastated several communities, including Oskar Blues’ hometown of Lyons. In response to the floods, the Ball Foundation pledged $1 million to several nonprofits that assisted with relief efforts in areas impacted by the flood. These organizations included Community Food Share, Habitat for Humanity of the St. Vrain Valley, Flatirons Habitat for Humanity, Impact on Education Foundation for Boulder Valley Schools and the Foothills United Way’s Foothills Flood Relief Fund.
