I am one of the 1St volunteers to work with 10 CAN. Real focus is on the needs of First Responders, Veteran Families & Children. An acre at the farm called "Hero Garden" produced 1000# of food for Blessed Hope Food Pantry & needy families in 2015 ...10 CAN's first full year. There is an after school martial arts class, RAD women & girl's self defense free class. The family homestead is used as an educational working farm. Grade school children are invited for a day on the farm once a month to feed animals, pull veggies, & experience the quiet-nature close to their homes. Buchholz High School Transitional Students enjoy a Agricultural Partnership. Will teach you to grow Mushrooms & sell honey at market from a Veterans Farm. Awesome Business & Community Partnerships have been formed & Sponsors can see their Donation at work. Events like Annual Father Daughter Dance, Mother Son Pic Nic, Survival River Race, & First Responder Banquet strive to involve the community. There are still many opportunities for all to volunteer, donate, attend, & become involved.
I am not a member of this group nor a grand philanthropist, but I will tell you I respect this organization more than most. Not only are their causes great, but their values. For one, they will help any veteran/first responder in any way they can. If they can’t do it, they’ll direct you to someone who can. What really grabs me about this non-profit is that they don’t want to simply get money by selling stuff and asking for donations, they earn it. They concentrate a lot on the youth of our nation, and teaching them valuable skills and pride. In the words of their founder, they “want to sell an experience,” rather than a sticker or t-shirt. I have competed in their annual “survival race” for three years now and plan to as long as I am able. I often feel that they have done more for me than I have for them by competing, but they are gracious nonetheless. 10CAN has some incredible values and is one of the few organizations I dealt with where I wondered, “who donated to who?”
It is not what 10 Can has done for me, it is what I have seen them do for others. We have a small ranch we're we have allowed 10 Can to bring out veterans, their spouses and care givers for rest, relaxation and rejuvenation. While we provide the location it is 10 Can that organized the camp outs, hunting expeditions and other activities for those who might otherwise not be able to experience the pleasures of nature. Matthew Has boundless energy when it comes to doing for our veterans and their families.
I wanted to go hunting for the first time and introduce my son to the outdoors. Little did I know that this organization was going to be so instrumental in my mental health recovery.
We joined the team as volunteers in order to pay it forward to our nations heroes. Military and First responders will benefit from this organization that does things with excellence.
10-CAN Inc. provides a multitude of services for veterans,
first responders and their families. As a volunteer, I have had the
privilege of working alongside Matthew Burke and his
passionate and energetic team. One of my favorite experiences
includes the 2015 Survival Race and Hero Fest at Otter Springs.
It was a great day! Check it Out...
It was truly my honor to honor those who have served and sacrificed.
10-CAN, Inc. has grown since then and continues to grow.
Supporting them is my way of supporting those who serve.
THIS IS A GREAT NON PROFIT TO HELP OUR VETERANS AND THEIR FAMILIES, I SAW FIRST HAND HOW CARING MATHEW BURKE IS TO OUR VETERANS, HE GOES ABOVE AND BEYOND WHAT MOST PEOPLE WILL DO TO HELP...THANK YOU FOR CARING...
Every encounter I have with this organization is positive, be it events, media presence, or personal encounters with the individuals involved. 10 CAN truly believes in their mission and is constantly reaching out to those in need. I have grown as a person from competing in their yearly survival race, learning lessons that have translated into my personal and professional life.
I have never seen a non-profit quite like this, especially not any for veterans. 10 CAN goes above and beyond the call of duty without question. They have created a network that truly helps veterans, first responders, and their families. They offer a large variety of services: martial arts training, personal defense training, therapeutic farming, helping needy families with food, the survival race (my favorite), warrior retreats... the list goes on. I just have never seen such a positive helpful group of people.
10 Can has provided outstanding service to veterans and first responders in the Newberry community as well as the surrounding area! They have also supported families and the local schools. We are proud to have them as part of the Newberry community.

This orginazation provides many in need with the care, help, and energy they need to get back up on their feet.
I have seen first hand what events such as the yearly Kayaking/Canoeing race can do to motivate our veterans, as well as get more people involved in the cause.
10 Can CAN AND WILL ALWAYS be a vital role in the Veteran Community.
5/5 from me.
Great organization. They help alot veterans. They need your support.
I'm a Canadian vet. I met the Burke's while competing at the Invictus games. 10 Can brought me in made me feel like family. This is a great organizations and I would recommend them to everyone. Thank you so much for everything.
10CAN is a difference maker. I first heard of 10CAN in 2014 and since then, 10CAN has made a positive difference in many lives and families. The founder Matt Burke is an inspiration and has one of the biggest hearts you’ll ever find in a person. 10CAN is to help the Veteran and their family, but the one thing no one counted on or at least me the difference Matt made in me. As a supporter of 10CAN I consider myself fortunate to have met Matt and listened to his goal. I highly recommend 10CAN to any of our Veterans and if anyone out there is looking for an origination to support. This is one the ones I recommend.
I have worked with 10 Can now for approximately a year. The organization has been instrumental in helping several veterans from my organization with work and a hand up when needed the most.
My experience with 10 Can has always been positive ans I look forward to many years of cooperation with them . Thank You Matthew Burke. Charles Roseberry, Veterans Protecting the Homeland.
10Can provides an excellent support network for Veterans and their families. And the FarmVetCo program, and the caring way they handle each task let's you know they do it because they care! That's refreshing these days! God Bless 10 can!
