'Can-struction' Fun Helps Out Food Pantry

'Can-struction' Fun Helps Out Food Pantry

Posted: Updated:

A fun competition at Samaritan Keep Home in Watertown is helping out a local food pantry.

Staff on each floor of the nursing home competed against each other in a "can-struction" competition. 

The results were designs like a lighthouse, an American flag and a dog house all made out of canned goods. 

The competition was done in connection with the home's United Way campaign and all the cans will go to the Watertown Urban Mission's food pantry. 

Organizers say the competition was a fun team building event.

"We just said come up with your imagination and build something. We didn't specify size or anything and they just ran with it. Some floors were really thinking outside of the box, and other ones were a little more conservative," said Rose Busler, recreation therapy director at Samaritan Keep Home.

Judges from the United Way and the Urban Mission deemed a wheelchair design the winner. The 8th floor will get a pizza party.
