As Thanksgiving approaches and the semester winds down, the Klein Institute for Undergraduate Engineering Life (KIUEL) is collecting canned goods for the Los Angeles Food Bank. We will utilize the donated goods to create a structure – a CANstruction – during our KIUEL Down for Finals Event.

The KIUEL Programming Committee is an undergraduate student committee that focuses on building community among the undergraduate engineers at USC. We coordinate a multitude of events, including service events like CANstruction, to educate the student body about the various university and professional initiatives in an effort to create a community that desires to learn about and explore engineering. We aim to strengthen leadership within Viterbi and to connect students with Viterbi professors, staff, and organizations to promote involvement.

For CANstruction

Donate cans to the Los Angeles Food Bank that will be used to create a structure in the E-Quad at the end of the semester during KIUEL Down for Finals on Tuesday, Dec 3rd at 2pm – 5pm. KIUEL will provide items like face masks, pencils, blue books, scantrons, snacks, etc. To be able to receive Finals self-care/preparation items, students must contribute to the structure in some way. Anyone can donate cans, and all faculty and students are welcome and encouraged to help build the planned structure. There will be weekly donation collections on Trousdale. You can also drop off cans any time at RTH 110.

Viterbi student organizations also have the opportunity to compete to see who can contribute the most cans. The winning organization will receive additional funding. To qualify for the award, the student organizations must send representatives to help build the structure. These organizations may and are encouraged to also table independently for cans.
Help give thanks by giving back to the L.A. community, and join KIUEL in showing what we can do. Help us meet our 800 can goal for December 3rd!
