In 2011 Flagstaff held a CAN Build Canned good sculpture competition for high school teams held in City Hall.
FALA won with recreating the cover of The Giving Tree.
Fast Forward 8 years, it's 2020, we are in Global Pandemic with Covid-19. Our community needs to feed families with the Flagstaff Family Food Center. And FALA is in need of a collaborative project that involves CREATIVITY and serves the COMMON GOOD.
VISION: Let's create a COLLABORATIVE Sculpture made of canned goods/non-perishables that benefits the Flagstaff Family Food Center.
How wonderful would it be if we used our parking lot as a site to build these Can Sculptures. We collect for a month, find a warm day in early December to build. Invite the community to drive, bike, walk around our sculptures and vote for the Best in Show.
We would love a ton of canned goods (meat/tuna, veggies, fruit) and non-perishables like: cereal, pasta, nut butters, granola bars/healthy kid snacks, rice, etc..
The Canned/Non-Perishable Food drive kicks off November 9th - December 14th. Please drop of at FALA Monday - Friday 9:00-4pm every day. There will be a box in the parking lot you can place your donations. FALA will also coordinate a pick up of donations in neighborhoods on Saturday, December 12th. We will award the grade that brings in the most donations with fun prizes! We will take volunteers with safety measures in place on a warmish day to construct our RAINBOW. And invite the community to do a drive, walk, bike by in our Parking Lot.
