Texas needs our help. As winter storms wreak havoc across the state and residents experience freezing temperatures and rolling power outages, nearly 13 million Texans are now struggling with access to clean water. Pipes have burst, wells are frozen and water treatment plants are offline due to power disruptions. Millions of Texas residents have little or no running water and many of those who do are advised to boil it in order to be potable.
Can'd Aid and our partners are working to provide immediate relief; through our WATER + RESPONSE program-help is on the way. One truckload of canned drinking water (50,400 cans) is being sent directly to the City of Austin for distribution, and another truckload is headed to Houston to be distributed through the Houston Food Bank. Each truckload provides 8,400 people essential drinking water in a critical time. Please support these and additional water shipments by donating today.
Your donation today will help provide an additional shipment of clean drinking water and provide immediate relief for Texans in need. In the long-term, Can'd Aid's WATER + RESPONSE program efforts will continue to provide essential water both in response to natural and man-made disasters.
