Goings on at the Because We Cannery

Trees for X-Mas

The San Francisco Cannery does a food drive every year, and this year they approached us to make a tree that would be their "Giving - Tree", filled with canned goods that are being donated to the food drive.

We designed the tree to have huge shelves on it to hold all the cans, and to easily slot together and come apart for future use.

The design is fun and whimsical to attract people to look at it, and then hopefully noticing the food drive as well.

The tree held 300 cans on it's shelves.

There was a small ceremony for the 'unveiling' of the tree, and we were asked to get up and speak. This was the first time we have been asked to present a piece, and it was an honor to do so, even though it was a very small job.

And then a Kwanza band played and danced in front of the tree.
