Sending water to disaffected communities, connecting professional musicians to aspiring ones, building two-wheelers for little two-leggers, crushing cans from coast-to-coast…. that’s the Can’d Aid Foundation fer ya and Oskar Blues Brewery owner Dale Katechis said that the work done by OB’s do-goodery non-profit partner is “the coolest shit.”

“What we’re doing alongside CAN’d Aid is the coolest shit we’re doing right now… company-wide. America could use more do-goodery these days, ” Katechis said during Burning Can Brevard last month. 

Can’d Aid focuses on four core areas:

TOWNS: Whether it’s digging our neighbors out of a flood or helping a local business get back on their feet after a disaster, community is at the heart and soul of the CAN’d Aid Foundation.  We respond quickly and passionately to help towns across the US. More info.

TREADS & TRAILS: Outdoor activities feed our soul. We LOVE bikes! We love running, hiking, climbing, camping and soakin’ up sunshine. If a trail needs maintenance, low-income children need new bikes to ride or there’s an opportunity to get more people off the couch and ready to explore the outdoors – CAN’d Aid is ready to make it happen.

TUNES: We believe music transforms and transcends – it’s the backbone of good times with good friends and should play a major role in our lives – so, we support programs that teach, share, inspire and make a difference through MUSIC, ARTS & CULTURE. More info.

LOVE YUR MAMA: From our “Crush It Crusade” which helps launch grassroots recycling programs, to jumping in and helping with local cleanup efforts, CAN’d Aid is all about showing love for Mama Earth. More info.
