An historic wildfire tore through suburban neighborhoods in Colorado's Boulder County, forcing tens of thousands to evacuate their homes, burning 500-1,000 homes and multiple businesses to the ground, and displacing countless other families. This project is in response to both the immediate need for assistance as well as ongoing long term recovery efforts. Please note: Post-emergency, needs are constantly evolving and we will do our best to keep this page up to date.

Wildfires destroyed 500-1000 homes and displaced thousands in neighborhoods throughout Boulder County. There is an urgent and immediate need for drinking water for displaced residents, and residents under a water boil advisory in affected areas, and hundreds of families have lost everything.


Can'd Aid is approaching this project in a two stages - immediate and long term. Can'd Aid is immediately mobilizing to ship canned water to affected areas for both displaced residents and in response to a water boil advisory in Louisville, CO. Due to the overwhelming need, we are also determining additional water canning/shipping capacity with our water partners.

Long-Term Impact

We are in talks with other local partners and supporters to determine needs and potential for volunteer opportunities. Currently, we are planning to continue our wildfire mitigation and recovery efforts from 2021 with Boulder County Open Space. We will also continue to assess community needs to determine appropriate Can'd Aid programming to offset the traumatic and lingering effects following a disaster.
