Giving a lift to CANstruction Dallas 2018
Shoppa’s Material Handling was the proud forklift sponsor of CANstruction Dallas 2018, held this year from Sept. 8-23. Four Toyota forklifts were donated for use throughout the event.
This year, Shoppa’s helped 24 teams of architects, designers, engineers and construction company personnel move around roughly 120,000 cans of food which the teams then used to create fantastic, giant-sized structures with a theme of “Oh the places we can go” – a spinoff from the classic Dr. Seuss book “Oh, the places you’ll go.”
All of the canned food is donated to the North Texas Food Bank after the event to help them in their mission to close the hunger gap in the North Texas area. CANstruction competitions are held all over the U.S. every year to benefit their local communities.
“Shoppa’s is very proud and excited to be a part of Canstruction Dallas,” said Preston Shoppa, Shoppa’s Corporate Rental Manager. “As a longtime community partner, we are all about promoting a volunteer spirit and encouraging engagement in making our home a better place for all.”
