As the clock struck 5:00pm on Tuesday, January 20, 2015, BNP Paribas employees did something a little bit different than heading straight home.

Partnering with Impact 4 Good, volunteers from BNP were tasked with competing in "CAN-opoly" to build a "can-structure" based off of a NYC landmark.

Volunteers worked in 15 teams to answer trivia questions to acquire cans to complete the task at hand. Over 2,250 cans of food and an abundance of creativity trivia questions is all that it took to give back in a meaningful way.

By the end of the two-hour project, it was evident that everyone was a winner as all of the cans were donated to Bed-Stuy Campaign Against Hunger (BSCAH) and helped to feed over 30,000 families this month.

Special thank you to Ira Almeas (Impact 4 Good), Angie Spann (BNP) and everyone who participated in this unique event!

The rules of CAN-opoly! A larger than life version of "monopoly" for a worthy cause!

A BNP participant acts as a game piece for CAN-opoly. Players earn cans to build their structures.

All smiles while, perhaps, discussing strategy? Game faces on!

This team may be on to something! In the end ALL of the (over 2,200) cans were donated to a food pantry!
