Students said they couldn't have made those prize-winning shapes without donations, and having so many canned goods to build from was inspirational because they knew where the items would go next.

"We were not expecting to have that many cans ... we had so many left over (after creating the art pieces)," Kimberly Kimmons, 17, said. "It was a really awesome feeling."

Chloe Fox, 17, agreed.    

"It's nice to help out other people," she said.

"I am really proud of all of the students," Burlison said. "The community really needs this."

 Senior Alex Farris said she enjoyed working on the project as well, but providing for the less fortunate is also rewarding.  

 "Knowing we will be helping out families in our community is a great gift,” she said.
