ACE of Hearts: Canned Food Drive “CAN-Struction” Collects over 2000 Cans and 9 Unique Structures

This winter, Applied Control’s charity-focused committee, ACE of Hearts, hosted a canned food drive to benefit the Parker Food Bank, a local charity providing food to families in need.

The premise of the drive was simple: host a competition for the best structure made out of donated items, and let engineers be, well, engineers. Teams had three weeks to brainstorm, source materials, and construct a unique structure. The results were amazing: all eight Applied Control organizational teams and additionally one Emerson team put together nine different structures, each averaging 200+ donated food and household items. The designs included a larger-than-life Rubik’s cube (by our Sales Associates team), a Colorado Flag (our Accounting team) and a Monty-Python Castle under-siege by a large chocolate rabbit (our Remote Automation Solutions Team). Check out all the great structures below:

Each structure is fantastic and selecting one as the best was a tough task for Parker Task Force.  After much deliberation, the Ameri-CAN Flag was selected as the winner. All teams were recognized and thanked for their efforts. Which structure do you like best?
