CES Still Reigns as "King of the Cans!"
CES has yet again won the annual Salvation Army Architects and Engineers Can Challenge with a donation of over 10,000 food items.The Salvation Army established the Architects and Engineers Can Challenge back in 1989 that invites local architecture and engineering firms to compete for top honours by gathering donations of non perishable food items and cash for the areas Salvation Army food support services. The number of items divided by the number of employees determines the winner.
CES holds the record for the largest monetary and food donation of the industry participants and over the past 13 years, CES has only lost once. These accomplishments are due to the internal competition CES employees hold. The employees are divided into teams and each team competes to see who can collect the most cans and cash. Over the past decade, this event has become an intense competition creating a fun rivalry within the office. The team with the highest per capita wins the office trophy which is passed on from the previous year's winners when The Salvation Army comes to collect the firm's donation. This year's winner with an outstanding per capita of 300 was Steve Martyszczyks team!
