CLHS puts the ‘Pooh’ in ‘Pooh Bear’ for 2016 CANstruction
Written by: Ashley Wiehe, communications manager

(April 6, 2016) — “What’s for breakfast?” Winnie the Pooh asks.

Winnie the Pooh represents every child anywhere. Winnie is able to scrounge up the food he wants and needs while more than 16 million children in the United States are hungry every day.

There are more than 10 million children who qualify for free or reduced breakfasts who still do not receive it.

This year, Concordia Lutheran High School’s CANstruction team is building Winnie the Pooh and Piglet sculptures to bring awareness to hungry children everywhere.

The team will be accepting can and cash donations at the high school on April 14, and each donation is used as a vote for the People’s Choice Award. The cans will be used for the structure and then donated to the Community Harvest Food Bank.

The build will take place on April 15 at Glenbrook Square Mall and will be on display for the following weeks.

Students participating are senior Rachel Sutter, sophomore Andrew Amstutz, sophomore Baylee Coburn, sophomore Nicole Crist, junior Grace Gallmeier, junior Victoria Miller, junior Kami Rieck, freshman Gretchen Werling, junior Rachel Widenhofer and junior Katie Wilder.

Thanks to team members Erin Bell, Aly Didier, Cole Droste and Chelsea Schwarz, and the Concordia Lutheran High School community and special thanks to Wanda and Robert Sutter and The Kroger Company.

Winnie and Piglet are able to enjoy a picnic on a fine day; however, we all know that hunger really is no picnic!
