Woodlands Prep Students Serve Community with Canstruction®
Structures made of canned food benefit Montgomery County Food Bank

Tomball, April 30, 2015: After months of organizing and planning, the first ever Woodlands Preparatory School Canstruction® event was a huge success. Students and their families gathered over 5,000 cans of food, all of which was donated to the Montgomery County Food Bank.
The event, spearheaded by Intermediate School math teacher Robin Sudberry, gave kids the chance to practice art, math, and engineering skills while doing something good for their local community. Planning began months ago, when students created designs that could be made entirely out of canned foods. Ms. Sudberry and several parents worked to get can donations from local grocery stores. Several local businesses and individuals also sponsored structures, including HEB, Kroger, Heerema Marine Contractors, Realtor Mary Latona, the School of Rock, the Johnson Development Corp., Eleanor W., Denise J., Merlot S., Sarah M., and the family of Mr. Luis Ruiz – Chairman of Woodlands Prep. Students also brought in hundreds of cans to help build their structures.
The designs are pictured below. Top row: “Red Envelope,” “Magic Hat” (which won the Most Creative Award), “End Hunger,” and “Peace and Harmony.” Bottom row: “Swooping In to End Hunger” (which won the Best Recipe Award — for Bean Salad), and “Wishing Hunger Away” (which won the Students’ Choice Award), and the “Burning Globe.” Congratulations to all the teams for their hard work and their spirit of service!
