At the start of the month of September, the canstuction canned food drive competition will begin and continue through  September 30.

Students can bring in canned food to Key Club, National Honor Society (NHS), or other participating clubs. September 30, the clubs will gather to build one massive structure as a school and donate the canned food to their chosen charity.

This will be the second year doing this event. Last year they were close to raising 1,000 cans but fell short.

“This year we hope to raise 1,000 cans,” NHS adviser Jessica Annett said.

Last year when they built the structures, each club did their own structures. Unlike last year, this year all the participating clubs will be coming together and making one single structure. The design for the structure has not been finalized yet, but there is a idea for the theme.

“We will do something along the lines of panther pride,” key club adviser Katherine Kelley said.
