You can be a hero for the homeless by contributing canned goods by April 20 to the News Journal or to any other business or organization participating in the 2018 CANstruction Contest.
In the annual event, teams or individuals willing to build a structure made out of canned goods and non-perishable food items compete for the CANstruction traveling trophy to keep for a year.
Teams traditionally consists of businesses, churches, schools or anyone else, and your structure is judged at your site — the judges come to you.
This year’s theme is “Superheroes.”
Judging will take place Friday, April 27, then all the food items will be donated to the Clinton County Homeless Shelter Food Pantry, which served more than 39,000 meals to those in need in 2016.
The event is sponsored by Wilmington Rotary and the Clinton County Homeless Shelter.
