Can-Tree Collection TEAM CHALLENGE

Friday, December 6th 10:30am - 3:30pm

Involve your business, team, or organization this holiday season by building your VERY OWN Can Tree and having it on display ALL WEEKEND!

Assembling a six-foot can tree is a fantastic team-building exercise that everyone will enjoy – and results in one-of-a-kind creation that reflects the true spirit of giving: feeding the hungry in our own community. Assemble your team of 3-10 employees (we think that 6 is the perfect number!) to participate in one of the following ways:


• Host a canned food drive: collect cans at your home or office to use for your Can-Tree.
• Each Can Tree will require approximately 600-800 cans
• Ideally cans should be of the same height for structural integrity
• Transport the cans you collect to event site to create your team’s Can Tree
*Tree building instructions and lead volunteer provided on site

BUY & BUILD - $500
• FOOD Share will purchase cans on your behalf and deliver them to the event site where you will build your Can Tree

• Host a fundraiser to collect funds to purchase cans  
• Set a fundraising goal of $500
*Tree building instructions and lead volunteer provided on site


• Have a Tree named and on display with your logo throughout the weekend
• Photo opportunity with team members available on Friday
* No building required

A wide variety of restaurants will be open for lunch and dinner on the day of the build -- another great way to Celebrate, Build, and Help!
