The Food Bank of Delaware

PJ Fitzpatrick has decided to participate in the DelawareCAN promotion sponsored by the Food Bank of Delaware.  Here is a bit of information regarding the competition from them:

“Delawareans continue to struggle with the current economic situation. Higher prices have left thousands with the difficult decision – pay the rent/mortgage or buy a bag of groceries. Food drive donations are down, while demand is up. In an effort to help stock
the shelves and ensure that hungry Delawareans have access to healthy foods, the Food Bank of Delaware has launched DelawareCan, a creative way to collect much-needed food and create a spirited competition in Delaware’s business community.

DelawareCan will be a competition amongst Delaware corporations. Companies will hold food drives and compete to create sculptures out of the food items collected. A $100
company registration fee will be required to cover costs related to transportation. The competition will take place from Monday, October 3 until Friday, October 28. During this time companies will coordinate company-wide food drives; at the conclusion of the food drive teams will begin the build phase. Before the food drive begins it will be important for groups to determine a theme for each structure. The theme will dictate the types of food items needed to build. Teams may decide the duration of time needed to collect food and complete the build phase. All structures must be completed before October 28.”

PJ Fitzpatrick is very excited to be participating in this tremendous event, and will be in direct competition with other businesses such as Dupont and ING Direct to build the best structure out of canned goods.  We have donation bins set up in the large break room, and will begin building the structure in the coming weeks.  If you have any suggestions or would like to help please contact Pete Fitzpatrick Jr.
