Canstruction is Underway at the Oakdale Mall [VIDEO]
If you haven't visited the Oakdale Mall lately, then you're missing a very unique display of art, in the form of canned goods.
For the third straight year, Binghamton area businesses will showcase their talents by building large structures entirely out of canned food to support hunger relief programs in Broome County.
Eleven teams will have their structures on display the week of April 3 – 10 throughout the Oakdale Mall in Johnson City. Last year’s event brought in more than 22,000 pounds of food and over $15,000 in support of the Food Bank of the Southern Tier and the Community Hunger Outreach Warehouse (CHOW)
Once the competition is over, the canned goods, and all the proceeds will support several area food pantries and hunger-relief activities in Broome County.
Check out my interview from last years event below, and make sure you drop by the Oakdale Mall now through Saturday and see the 2016 displays.
