(KCEN) -- For the third year in a row local businesses and community organizations are coming to Belton to help those in need, one can at a time.
The event is called Canstruction.
It allows teams of five to create an artistic scene with canned food that will eventually be donated to Helping Hands Ministry.
More than 30,000 cans of food were used in the works of art with seven different groups fighting for the top spot.
The teams had three hours to complete their masterpiece which will be on display at UMHB.
That's where they will then be voted on by a panel of judges and the public.
Executive Director of Helping Hands Ministry Rucker Preston said, "This has been a great event. We didn't have any idea where this would lead two years ago. We had 15,000 cans and it certainly helped our pantry, but this year we anticipate about 35,000 cans of food which really goes a long way for our families in central Texas."
Tanya Reed, who was building one of the displays, said, "It's great. That's a no lose situation. We get to do something that's a great benefit. It's a competition; everybody loves a little competition and its just a lot of fun too."
If you'd like to take your family to check out the Canstruction art it's at the Mayborn Campus Center.
It's open Friday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
