PORT ANGELES — Peninsula Behavioral Health is planning an event to benefit local food banks and help stock their residential home cupboards.

PBH is seeking local businesses and service organizations to form teams.

Under the guidelines of the national nonprofit, Canstruction, five local teams will design and construct works of “art” out of canned goods.

The theme for this inaugural event Nov. 15 is “Sea What We Can Do!”

“This is a win-win for our community,” said past-president and board member Deb Reed.

“Businesses can form their own morale building teams and/or partner with a service club. They'll work together designing a sculpture on our theme of 'The Sea' made of canned goods.

“Of course, the really fun part is constructing the design within the 10-by-10-by-10 space, all within 12 hours.”

The public will be invited to view the “canstructed” works of art the weekend of Nov. 15, and awards will be presented to participants.

This year, PBH is limiting participation to five teams.

For an application, contact Rebekah Miller at PBH at 360-457-0431, ext. 159, 
or rebekahm@peninsula
