In line with the #OneTeam movement, initiated by Anheuser-Busch, Ambros Inc. has continued to support the battle against COVID-19; this time, through a donation of 4,704 cans of water, used by the U.S.O. to support the sailors of the USS Theodore Roosevelt.
“The NEX reached out to me to purchase water since inventory levels were low, and orders were not being filled, due to COVID-19 related shortages in the mainland,” said Isabella Shimizu, Key Account Manager. “Initially, they were given a price quote for water, but when I was informed that they were looking to purchase water for the USS Theodore Roosevelt, I inquired with our GM if we could offer them our reserves of AB Relief Water, which is normally distributed during emergencies or natural disasters,” added Ms. Shimizu.
Ambros GM, Tom Shimizu, then decided to donate whatever relief water could be spared, stating, “The brave men and women from the USS Theodore Roosevelt risk so much to keep us safe. When we heard they were in need, we pulled our resources together and delivered the water straight away. We are proud to serve those who serve. The teams at the N.E.X., and the U.S.O. were key partners in this, and we’d like to thank them for their help.”
To date, Ambros Inc. has worked with global and local partners such as Anheuser-Busch, Kimberly Clark, Diversey, Matson, Papa John’s, and the Guam Reef Hotel to make numerous donations in the form of canned water, meals, and other support, in the battle against COVID-19 throughout Guam:
· 35,064 cans of water to support local groups; The American Red Cross, Catholic Social Services, Ministry to the Homeless, UOG, GRMC, GMH, and the USO
· Over $35,000 in PPE supply donated to front-liners
· Over 200 Meals donated to frontline workers
· 3D printer and raw material used by PPE for Guam to produce face shields
All donations are made in the spirit of Anheuser-Busch’s #OneTeam movement that encourages support of the front-line in the battle against COVID-19. “We are proud to bring our local and global partners together for the greater good, in support of the frontline. We truly are one team.” Shimizu said.
