We did not make this decision lightly.
While the event has been cancelled, hunger has not been cancelled. It has, in fact, been accelerated.
Many have asked what they can do to help. Our goal through this pandemic is to make sure food security is safely achieved for all community members in need. If you are in a position to financially donate to MOM, please do so by visiting the MOM website.
Each year for the past nine years, Canstruction has brought in an average of $70,680.44 worth of shelf-stable food for our pantry, as well as $35,000 in revenue for our programs. Without Canstruction this year, our clients won’t have access to this enormous inventory of food.
Please consider making a cash donation to help us to promote food security in our community. In the interest of safety, we are not accepting food or clothing donations at this time to reduce the risk of transmission of the COVID-19 virus to our volunteers and clients. We are working closely with Second Harvest and the rapidly changing recommendations for food safety and distribution.
