Bikers Buying Lemonade
A lot has happened since our last report - including a very successful lemonade stand fundraiser where we raised $13,000 selling lemonade, hot dogs and baked goods! Community members of all types came out in force - exemplifying Can'd Aid's mission of rallying people from all walks of life to make their communities a better place.
Can'd Aid has also been working on diversifying our funding through grantwriting efforts - recently completing requests from the Pomar Foundation, Republic Services, John G. Duncan Charitable Trust, and the Community Foundation of Northern Colordado. In addition to writing grants, we have also created a sponsorship deck (attached) for local businesses and organizations to purchase and piece of equipment, complete with customized equipment sponsorship and corporate volunteer opportunities!
