Water to CA + Prepositioning for 2023

Can'd Aid's last report ended just as we were preparing to ship water to Florida in response to Hurricane Ian. Ultimately, one and a half truckloads of water were delivered to The River Church at Tampa Bay, and then distributed via CityServe.Us to five different locations across the region that had been devastated by the Hurricane (Safe House Church, River Church Ft. Myers, Destiny Church Naples, Ft Myers Christian Center + Church United Naples). This was an impactful donation, as according to CityServe.Us's Executive Director of Strategic Partnerships, "water will continue to be a need- several locations water systems completely failed and not forecast to be fixed for weeks." 

In October 2022, Can'd Aid also shipped an additional half truckload of water to the USNS Comfort - SouthCom, a US Navy hospital ship providing medical relief to five different stops in the Caribbean. The water was distributed to patients and medical personnel in the following five countries: Guatemala, Honduras, Columbia, Dominican Republic, and Haiti.

Just last week, Can'd Aid worked in partnership with relief organizationGood360 to respond to water needs in Coastal California in the wake of severe flooding. One pallet of water went to United Way of Santa Cruz County and the remainder of the truckload went to Starting With a Penny Food Bank, where it will be distributed in partnership with 10 different organizations within the Sacramento region. This donation is expected to serve approximately 7,200 people.

Each of these shipments was funded with support from long-term partners, Journeys and canned by Oskar Blues Brewery. Can'd Aid continues to strenghthen our partnership with Good360 in an effort to pre-position water in disaster prone areas, ultimately allowing us to provide water more quickly and efficiently in times of need.
