Be a Schmidt Associates Hunger Hero!
Help us reach our goal of $1,500

This year's CANstruction fundraiser may have gone virtual, but we can still have a significant impact on hunger in Indianapolis. Just $1 can help feed up to 3 people in need through Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana!

COVID-19 has not only halted the physical CANstruction competition this year, but it has also dramatically increased demand for Gleaners food supply—they reported a three-fold increase in families needing assistance as a result of the pandemic. Our fundraising efforts are perhaps more important than ever.

As a firm, our goal is to raise $1,500 for this year's fundraiser. That can help feed 4,500 people.

Donate on this page to support the cause, and help us win a friendly competition with our fellow AEC firms!

If you have questions, please reach out to CANstruction co-captains Meghan Miller and Myrisha Powell.

What is CANstruction?

"Canstruction is an international hunger relief charity that raises millions of pounds of food each year for local food banks. Every year, Canstruction chapters have competitions citywide where teams compete for awards in the following categories: Best Meal, Structural Ingenuity, Best Original Design, Most Cans, Best Use of Labels, and People’s Choice awards. Winners from each local competition then go on to compete internationally in these categories."

Schmidt Associates has participated in the Indiana competition, hosted at the Indiana State Fair with support from SMPS, for the past 10 years. After carefully designing and assembling our can creations, all of the non-perishable food items used are donated to Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana.
