PR9.NET November 12, 2007 - UNIONDALE, NY – Canstruction®, a national charity committed to ending hunger, is using "one can" as a catalyst for change which was sponsored locally by the Long Island Chapter of the Society for Marketing Professional Services (SMPS) under the auspices of the Society for Design Administration. Teams of design and construction industry professionals, led by architects and engineers, built 8 giant self-supporting structures out of 28,627 cans of food ultimately destined for the hungry on Long Island.
