Throughout the Advent-Christmas Season the people of Pictou United Church will once again be creating our CAN-struction Christmas Creation! This unique Christmas Creation is created from donations of cans and other non-perishable food items.
In 2008 we made a huge difference as we CAN-structed our Christmas Tree and then donated over 880 cans to
the Pictou West Food Bank. In 2009 we âBoxed-It-Upâ as we created a Christmas Sleigh out of 350 boxes of food items, which were again donated to the Pictou West Food Bank. In 2010 we CAN-Structed a Christmas Tree once again, with over 400 items going to the Pictou West Food Bank. In 2011 we CAN-structed the Bethlehem stable, resulting in a donation of over 900 food items to the Pictou West Food Bank. And last year, our most adventurous undertaking of CAN-structing two huge candy canes, complete with a holly-berry wreath and a surrounding fireplace, all from 629 food items which were again donated to the Pictou West Food Bank.
This year we are planning another CAN-struction Christmas Creation.
