Food Bank of South Jersey Canstruction

2015 South Jersey CanstructionDuring Hunger Action Month (Sept.) Food Bank of South Jersey tries to do creative things to bring awareness to the global issue of hunger that impacts our beautiful South Jersey community. Last year, we launched a Canstruction event, which was a hit. See pictures below and the attachments.  Also, go to our website and click on the link for Canstruction.
There is a wonderful video!  www.foodbanksj.org

 

South Jersey Corporations build giant structures made out of full cans of food! The “build” date for the event is Saturday, September 17.  There’s plenty of time to register, submit your design, (Sept 8) assemble your team, and procure your cans.  The structures will be on display at Rutgers Camden Campus for one week.  There is a judging and award ceremony as well.

 

This event is a  unique “food drive”.  It’s a great team building opportunity, and the best part is that all the canned goods are donated to the Food Bank of South Jersey to feed those in need. It doesn’t get much better than that!

 

If your team is up for the fun and challenge, we welcome you.
Also, challenge another company to join you in making a difference!

AEC Cares at the 2016 AIA National Convention

In this month’s ARCHITECT Magazine, July 2016, pages 52-53 feature the AEC Cares project from the National Convention in Philadelphia. The project was a “blitz-build” renovation of the Philadelphia Athletic Recreation Center. As described on the AEC Cares website: “In 2016, AEC Cares partnered with the Community Design Collaborative to renovate the Philadelphia Athletic Recreation Center. Used by hundreds of children in the Sharswood neighborhood for after school and sports programs, the center was in desperate need of repair and upgrades.” As their sixth annual blitz build, project Philadelphia, as it was dubbed, took place on May 18th, 2016, the day before the 2016 AIA National Convention in Philadelphia. AIA WJ Emerging Professional, Jeffrey Brummer, AIA, was a member of the design team. Jeffrey is located on the far left side of the design team photograph on page 52 (and below).

Visit www.aeccares.com for more information. There are videos on the website highlighting the program.
