The 50,000 cans of water are to help with the organization’s COVID-19 relief efforts.

DENVER — Molson Coors Beverage Company has announced plans to send thousands of cans of water to assist Colorado's homeless population amid the COVID-19 outbreak. 

The beer giant has pledged to donate 50,000 cans of water to the Salvation Army Intermountain Division based out of Denver to help with the organization’s relief efforts.  

The water, which is expected to arrive in Colorado on Thursday, March 27, will be distributed to the homeless and those in shelters without access to clean drinking water due to restrictions on drinking fountains to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
