A drive to collect canned goods for the Glen Ellyn Food pantry resulted in the creation of some sculptures as well during the Canapalooza Project created by the junior high Sunday school class of Grace Lutheran Church in Glen Ellyn.

The project was sponsored by OneChurch, a group of churches in Glen Ellyn working together in service and ministry. Joining Faith Evangelical Lutheran, Grace Lutheran, St. Barnabas Episcopal, St. Luke Evangelical Lutheran, St. Mark's Episcopal and St. Petronille Catholic churches was the Glen Ellyn Public Library youth department, who formed a team and collected food donations. The donations were collected in front of Trader Joe's in Glen Ellyn, which also donated canned goods and paper bags.

Out of the 1,120 cans collected, OneChurch youth built three sculptures -- an igloo, a cupcake and a family of penguins. The sculptures took six hours to build, with Glen Ellyn Food Pantry volunteers helping to create the giant cupcake. After the cupcake, full-sized igloo and penguin family were built, the canned goods were donated to the Glen Ellyn Food Pantry at Grace Lutheran Church.
