ARCO Beverage Group is a proud sponsor of Drink Local, Think Global.

Drink Local, Think Global works with Charity: Water by partnering with craft breweries through events and ongoing sponsorship to raise funds to build water wells. Charity: Water is a nonprofit on a mission to bring clean and safe drinking water to people in developing countries. 

The Global Crisis

  • 663 Million People in the world live without access to clean water–that is 1 in 10 people worldwide (Twice the size of the United States)
  • 1 in 3 people worldwide do not have access to a toilet
  • 2,200 children die every day from diseases caused by unclean water
  • Diseases caused by dirty water kill more people than all forms of violence, including war, every single year
  • In Africa alone, women spend a combined 40 billion hours a year walking for water
  • Women and children from all over the world spend a combined 125 million hours a day collecting water

Drink Local, Think Global’s most recent event in Omaha, NE raised enough funds to build a well in the Central African Republice. More than 500 people will now have access to clean water, possibly for the first time ever!
