Oskar Blues Brewery and Ball Corp., through the CAN’d Aid foundation, canned and ship clean drinking water to victims of the flood ravaged state of South Carolina. The initial shipment of more than 1,600 cases, totaling over 38,000 cans of water, arrived at the epicenter of flooding in Columbia, S.C., on Monday, October 12, 2015 with more arriving in the coming days.
Cans provided by Ball Corporation filled and canned with fresh drinking water to get out to national disaster area. Deliveries of the first drinking water arrived on Monday, Oct. 12, 2015. On-the-ground NGO All Hands is assisting in the delivery of the much needed fresh drinking water and freight was donated by Justus Truck Lines. Canned water production began Friday, Oct. 9th in the Brevard, N.C., brewery and will continue as needed to help the citizens of South Carolina.
This is made possible by Oskar Blues’ CAN’d Aid, a 501c3 started by Dale Katechis, soul founder of Oskar Blues Brewery, in 2013 following the Colorado flooding that devastated the hometown of Oskar Blues Brewery, Lyons, Colo. What started as a response to the 2013 floods in Colorado has now raised and distributed more than $1,000,000 to support small businesses and families in need all across the country. The foundation is the non-profit arm of Oskar Blues Brewery and has evolved into an irreverent nonprofit focused on nationwide “do-goodery.”
