Can'd Aid, Atlas Copco to Provide Clean Drinking Water in Texas

Can'd Aid, Atlas Copco to Provide Clean Drinking Water in Texas

After the horrific winter storm that severely impacted the state of Texas, Can'd Aid and Atlas Popco have announced that they will supply safe, clean drinking water to impacted citizens. Full details are below.


Atlas Copco USA's employee-driven Water for All program today announces it will provide support to the state of Texas with fresh, clean drinking water in partnership with Can’d Aid. This support responds to the recent ice and snowstorms that have caused widespread power outages, resulting in resident’s inability to obtaining heat, water, food, and medicine.

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."

Through the dedicated and passionate work of volunteering employees at Atlas Copco, Water for All funds projects worldwide, providing access to clean drinking water, sanitation and hygiene. For every dollar an employee donates, the company adds another two dollars, making a double match.

Since 2010, Atlas Copco USA has donated over 1.95 million dollars to clean-water drinking projects, including three projects directly related to Covid-19 emergency relief in the United States.
