Canstruction challenged 11 teams from area businesses to build giant sculptures out of canned goods. The exhibits, along with donations from Dayton Mall visitors, collected 30,986 pounds of canned goods that were donated to The Foodbank. The Ohio Valley Associated Builders and Contractors organized the event alongside The Foodbank, Miami Township and our generous sponsors. Old Navy employees volunteered to ‘decanstruct’ the sculptures.
