First Annual Canstruction at Mount Pleasant Towne Centre

Mount Pleasant Towne Centre has partnered with Lowcountry Food Bank and ABC News 4 to host Canstruction, a canned food drive that will showcase Philip Simons High School students as they build a lowcountry-themed structure with canned food. Canstruction is sponsored by South Carolina Federal Credit Union, Costco and Geico Charleston.

The Canstruction team will be building a tall gate with two palm trees, inspired by professional gate blacksmith and school namesake, Mr. Philip Simmons, who worked with iron to create some of the most well-known iron gates in Charleston. An estimated 4,650 cans of food will be used in the Canstruction sculpture, all of which will be donated to Lowcountry Food Bank.

Event attendees are encouraged to bring additional canned goods for donation and will enjoy food + snacks, live entertainment by Chance and Circumstance, jump castle, face painting arts + crafts and more!

Saturday, November 16 from noon to 3 PM

The Oaks, across from Barnes & Noble.
