Silver State CANstruction Project to benefit the Food Bank of Northern Nevada
New Silver State Chapter project – Sculpting an End to Ameri-can Hunger
The AT&T Pioneers have created the wind-up to aid hunger in our community the Ameri-Can way. Just like this sculpture, food insecurities are supported from the ground up. Volunteerism is executed with a strong foundation, evolution of progress and strategic planning to best help those in need. Red, white and blue are a display of American pride which aligns with the core Pioneer value of charity. The creation of these colorful can labels reveals the demand to feed our neighbors in need. And the collaborative efforts of our volunteers to build this design exhibits the Pioneer legacy. Confident.Committed.Connected. Can-Structed.
Starting with design meetings in January and culminating with the actual build on March 11,2020, the AT&T Silver State Pioneers, life members and others came together to participate in the CANstruction project. We had a very unique design that led us to victory in two categories – Best Original Design and People’s Choice. We contributed a total of 1,252 cans of food and raised $171.00 for the Food Bank through votes, which translated into 1,504 meals! We logged over 100 hours and had new volunteers participate in this fun and rewarding first time project.
