With thousands of Coloradans displaced due to the Marshall Fire, Longmont-based nonprofit Can’d Aid is joining recovery efforts in its home state and facilitating the donation of a truckload of 50,400 cans of emergency drinking water tomorrow, Jan. 4, to Louisville and surrounding areas.
The emergency drinking water, packaged in infinitely recyclable aluminum cans, will be donated in Louisville, Colo., at 9 am on Tuesday, Jan. 4, in response to a water boil advisory following last week’s fires.
This shipment, funded by Journeys, is the latest in Can’d Aid’s ongoing partnership with Ball Corporation and brewery partners Oskar Blues, CANarchy, Sleeping Giant Brewing and Boulder Beer to deliver emergency drinking water to communities in need nationwide. Can’d Aid has delivered more than 2.7 million cans of drinking water to date.
We’d love to set you up with Can’d Aid executive director Diana Ralston for more information on the donation and Can’d Aid’s important work in Colorado and nationwide.
Who: Can’d Aid is facilitating the donation of a truckload of 50,400 cans of emergency drinking water this month to Colorado communities.

How: Using the same equipment that typically produces canned craft beer and aluminum cans donated by Ball Corporation, Can’d Aid’s brewery partners Oskar Blues, CANarchy, Sleeping Giant Brewing and Boulder Beer fill thousands of cans of water to quickly get it to those who need it most. Can’d Aid works with local municipalities and nonprofits to deliver the water as quickly as possible. Canned water is good for the environment; aluminum is infinitely recyclable and a better alternative to single-use plastics.
Since 2015, Can’d Aid has donated more than 2.7 million cans of water to communities in need by teaming up with brewing partners to respond to natural disasters across the country. Communities nationwide with a need for water should contact Can’d Aid.
