Charity Events

The Construction Leadership Council of Middle TN supports two local charities: Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle TN and The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Nashville.

After the structures have been on display, all food is donated to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee Emergency Food Bank program. In 2015, the event raised over 20,000 lbs of food! The Nashville event is part of Canstruction international: www.canstruction.org
