CANstruct for a Cause
12:00-pm - 2:30pm
WKU Centennial Mall
Canstruction® is a unique charity which hosts competitions, exhibitions and events showcasing colossal
structures made entirely out of full cans of food. At the end of the event, all food is donated to the WKU Food Pantry, HOTEL INC, and
Hope House. WKU’s CANstruct® for a Cause challenges organizations to think critically
about local, national, and global hunger issues. Groups will discuss hunger issues
and engage in awareness activities in addition to the building. WKU’s CANstruct® for a Cause event is licensed under an agreement between Canstruction® at the Western
Kentucky University ALIVE Center for Community Partnerships to host the event.
Mark your calendars for the 2015 Service-Learning Impact Expo, a campus-wide event that acknowledges students who have completed service-learning projects over the last year by allowing students to showcase their projects through poster presentations.
