Can’d Aid will use a $13,000 donation from Atlas to send clean drinking water to Texans.
Atlas Copco USA’s employee-driven Water for All program announced it will provide support to the state of Texas with fresh, clean drinking water in partnership with Can’d Aid.
This support is a response to the recent ice and snowstorms that have caused widespread power outages in Texas, resulting in resident’s inability to obtain heat, water, food, and medicine.
According to the press release, Can’d Aid will use the $13,000 donation from Atlas Copco to send 50,400 cans to Texans in need within the Houston and Austin areas. A truckload of 50,400 cans will support about 8,400 individuals or approximately 2,100 families.
“We have hundreds of colleagues, their families, and multiple locations across Texas,” said Aaron Prato, vice-president of Atlas Copco North America LLC. “We see the devastation,
and our hearts go out to everybody affected. This is just one way that we will play a part in the work to get the area back on its feet.”
