AUSTIN, Texas (KTSM) – Governor Greg Abbott and the Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM) announced the delivery of 39 pallets of hand sanitizer from Anheuser-Busch to TDEM’s central Texas warehouse.

“As a proud Texas employer, Anheuser-Busch is committed to uniting our communities, strengthening our democracy and encouraging even greater participation in the political process,” said Anheuser-Busch Chief External Affairs Officer Cesar Vargas.

He continued, “One part of this commitment is shifting our production capabilities to donate hand sanitizer so that election officials and voters throughout the state and rest of the country can take part in a safe election this fall. We like to say that ‘beer is bipartisan’ and we are proud to step up and serve our communities during this election season.” 

TDEM will distribute the hand sanitizer to counties across Texas for use at polling locations during early voting and on Election Day.

“By distributing hand sanitizer to polling locations across the state, Texans will be able to protect themselves while exercising their right to vote,” Governor Abbott said. “Thank you to Anheuser-Busch and Silver Eagle Beverages for teaming up with the Lone Star State to help ensure the protection of voters and election workers at the ballot box.”
