Canned Castle Competition

Every year, Fraternities and Sororities at Villanova University participate in a unique canned food drive. The fraternities and sororities collect so many cans they make them into “can castles.” Each fraternity and sorority choose a theme for their castle that coordinates with their theme for Greek Week. This event is part of Greek Week, which aims to promote unity within the Fraternity and Sorority Life community.

2016 Competition

This year, 3,507 pounds of canned goods were collected! The canned goods were donated and transported to North Light Community Center in Manayunk to replenish their Food Cupboard as part of our NOVAL (North Light Villanova Alliance) program.
