On May 15, Can’d Aid Volunteers Build 135 Skateboards to Donate to Nashville Youth

WHAT: Local volunteers with Can’d Aid will build 135 skateboards to be donated to the entire 5th grade class at Charlotte Park Elementary School!

Can’d Aid has partnered with Square State Skate to make this a memorable donation. Charlotte students will be treated to a 3-day long PE program with their new skateboards, ensuring kids are learning the importance of getting outside and leading active lives.


  • Skateboard Build - May 15, 5-7pm

  • Skateboard Donation - May 16, 1-2:30pm


  • Skateboard Build - Blackstone Brewing Co. (2312 Clifton Ave Suite B, Nashville, TN 37209)

  • Skateboard Donation - Charlotte Park Elementary School (480 Annex Ave, Nashville, TN 37209)

MEDIA OPP: Media are invited to attend the skateboard build and donation.

WHY: Children average 7 hours of screen time per day and only 1 in 5 gets the daily recommended amount of exercise. Through its Treads + Trails program, Can’d Aid helps combat these troubling statistics. Can’d Aid has donated more than 3,500 bikes and skateboards nationally to students in 2022. At a time when our nation’s youth are experiencing extreme levels of anxiety, depression and mental health issues, Can’d Aid’s programs provide healthy and active outlets for underserved and at-risk children across the country.
