The Insurance Office of America hosts ArCANtecture Events for Employees, Feeding Thousands of Food Insecure Families

October 19, 2022

On August 29th, the Insurance Office of America (IOA) held an ArCanTecture event at their Northeast Regional Event in Ithaca, NY. Over 6,100 lbs of non-perishable food was donated by Wegmans Ithaca for the event - that’s nearly 5,100 meals! The non-perishable items used wereIOA ArCanTecture.jpg​ collected by Naglee Moving & Storage and were brought to . In even more good news, IOA donated $8,000, providing more than 20,000 meals!

In October, IOA held their second ArCANtecture event in Buford, Georgia for their southeastern employees. In total, over 25,000 meals were donated to local families in need, with over 5,500lbs of nonperishable donations taken to the Lawrenceville Co-Op Ministry by Hilldrup Moving and Storage.

ArCANtecture is a signature team-building event hosted by Move For Hunger, where the primary goal is to use their architectural skills to create structures out of cans. These structures are then judged on a few different factors: creativity, total food used, and of course, the stability of the design. The winning team wins an award and secures bragging rights for the rest of the year!
