Cornerstone Architectural Group will be participating again in New Jersey’s annual CANstruction competition. CANstruction is a charitable event where design firms create and build sculptures from canned food items. The cans are then donated to local food banks, in this case the Community Food Bank of New Jersey. This year the competition is being hosted at the Prudential Center in Newark, home of the New Jersey Devils and the New Jersey Nets. The build day is November 11th, and the sculptures will be on display from November 12th through the 14th.

We have chosen not to reveal our design until the day of the competition, but our computer model and our shopping list are complete. Our design is in keeping with the theme of Newark NJ, and was influenced by the fact that the competition is on Veterans Day.

We need the following canned items to complete our design:

Campbells Soup – 1,050

Starkist Tuna – 1,005
Bumble Bee Tuna – 434
Corn – 240
Tuttorosso Tomatoes – 313
Del Monte – 161
Artichokes – 231
Evaporated Milk – 82

We are asking our friends and business partners to make a donation to help defer the cost of the canned food items. Donations can be cash, check (payable to Cornerstone Architectural Group) or grocery store gift cards. If you would like to donate food items, please contact us first as we need specific brands and types of cans in order to complete our design. Any food or money collected in excess of what is needed for our sculpture will be donated directly to the food bank.
