CHICAGO -- MillerCoors will donate 8,000 cases of beer to be shipped to U.S. troops in the Middle East in time for the Fourth of July, the Denver Business Journal reported.
The donation is being made as part of program launched by Pizzas 4 Patriots, a nonprofit organization created to support service men and women. Pizzas 4 Patriots is in its second year of delivering food and beverages to the troops overseas, the report stated.
The organization is planning to send more than 25,000 pizzas and a total of 8,000 cases of Coors Light and Miller Lite to the Middle East as a result of the donations of both products and services by corporate sponsors MillerCoors, Pizzeria Uno and DHL, according to the Denver Business Journal.
