Teams of Encana staff transformed pallets of canned food into creative sculptures at the Encana Cares CAREstruction competition Wednesday, October 12 in Calgary, in support of the Calgary Inter-Faith Food Bank.
The teams, drawing from different business units in the company, went head-to-head in a bid to build the most creative, structurally sound sculptures out of cans and other non-perishable food products. Each team got 500 cans to start with – none of which could be damaged in the process, since all of the building materials were being sent to the food bank once the creations were dismantled.
The team with the Most Original Design, as chosen by a panel of judges from the food bank, received $250 toward the charity of the team's choice, and a People's Choice award winner was chosen by staff votes, with $250 donated to the charity of that team's choice.
CAREstruction was held as part of the Encana Cares Annual Campaign, which provides employees with a convenient and confidential way to plan annual giving. Employees choose the organizations they wish to support, make a donation, and the company matches donations dollar-for-dollar, up to $25,000 annually per employee. Encana covers all associated administrative costs for the campaign, so 100 percent of donations go directly to the organization supported.
