Since Longmont's Can’d Aid was founded in 2013, more than 2 million cans of water have been distributed, over 9,600 skateboards and bikes and 4,000 art kits built for underserved youth, and more than 3,000 instruments donated. This has been accomplished with the help of volunteers nationwide and through relationships with community leaders, nonprofit organizations, volunteers, and corporate partners.
