CANstruction 2012

ARIDO's Grand Valley Chapter put together a team that participated in the 2012 CANstruction, making this team ARIDO's fifth year participating in the annual competition. Meetings started in January and the Team came up with a great concept for the build. The Mission Statement...

"Wouldn't it be nice if the Easter Bunny could share more than chocolate eggs once a year? Wouldn't it be nice if there was a Food Bank Bunny that could deliver healthy food to our neighbours in need? The Food Bank does a really good job, but it's really up to all of us to follow by example and do what we CAN to help."

Team members did a great job with fundraising and we owe a big thanks to all of our sponsors for making this year's build possible. We were able to raise nearly $5,200 to purchase close to 3,400 cans of tuna, salmon, chicken and vegetables to make the build a success.

Build Day was on March 10 at Conestoga Mall in Waterloo. A big thanks also goes out to the team members that worked so hard: Karen Wilson, Valerie Anderson, Rosemary Ratkaj, Erika MacKay, Sanja Mrsa, Tawnessa Carter and Benjamin Ouellette and to the volunteers from Mumby Insurance that helped out on Build Day.

Team ARIDO won the distinction of the 'Jurors' Favourite' award, this is the Teams 3rd award in 5 years of 'competition'. The Foodbank was the biggest winner when all 11 structures came down on March 18 and the food and money raised is distributed in the community. View images, here.
