Why We Do Canstruction

Here are the facts:

$17,350.53 donated
158,300 cans
183,967 meals provided

This year’s Canstruction was a huge success in many ways. The de-canstruction of our Dallas skyline went down last Saturday. Over 13,000 cans were disassembled – turning our skyline structure into meals. As with most tear downs, the process went by much faster than the build, especially with the help of students from DISD’s Lassiter Early College High School at El Centro.

Alpha’s Jeff Wilt said, “Those kids were great, they really stepped up and probably worked harder than everyone else! Hopefully some have interest in engineering or architecture as future careers. I would welcome them back next year during the construction phase.”

AND for the cherry on top… our structure was featured on WFAA. Watch the video here.

A big thanks to all who volunteered, and we hope to see students from Lassiter again next year!
