Description

The Giving Tree CANornaments

Donating food while making giant ornaments out of canned goods = Feeding People = #NoOneGoesHungry

Y'all, It's Happening in Downtown Raleigh, NC

Teams collect cans and plastic containers of non-perishable food items to build a large holiday CANornament out of the products on a giant holiday giving tree at Raleigh Union Station. At the end of the event, we take a ton of photos of the creative CANornaments then box up the cans for distribution by the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina

About the Giving Tree CANornament Event: GIVING TREE EVENT WEBSITE #GivingTuesday2019

  • The Giving Tree will pop-up on the plaza at Raleigh Union Station Dec. 3, Giving Tuesday. Inclement weather plan is inside nearby at the Contemporary Art Museum (CAM)

  • Teams collect cans at home or an offsite location then deliver them on the day of the event. A Build Team will then assemble the CANornament during the event

  • Ornaments are about the size of a large hula hoop with an approximate diameter of 5 ft, traditionally needing about 50 to 200 cans & plastic container products to make a CANornament of this scale

  • Some examples from past events are Bulbs | CANdy Canes | CANdeer | CANta Clause | Snowflakes | Tinsel | Toys | Bows | Stars

  • CANornament color, design, and shape should be natural to the cans/containers used. An example would be using peanut butter with red lids and then, some with green lids, to make a giant wreath ornament

  • PLEASE ~ no painting, no adding colored paper, no altering/removing the labels or adding any other changes to the cans or products you use when making the CANornament

  • No glass and No cardboard box products, it makes it very difficult to box up and transport with these items in the mix

  • You may use props to support your design however, all props must be removed at the end of the event or they will be discarded or donated

  • A Social Media voting contest online via LIKES at the hashtag will take place throughout the day of the event and the winning team with the most LIKES votes will be awarded the “star” spot for next year's tree, teams use the hashtag #CANornaments2019RAL

  • Drop-off/Assembly 9 am to Noon with all ornaments completed by 3pm

  • Partners: originovel llc, Food Bank of C&ENC, Downtown Raleigh Alliance, City of Raleigh, CAM Raleigh

  • Can't make it that day yet still want to contribute? Consider making a donation by choosing that option. 100% of the donations will go to Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina
