Rockville-based general contractor, Grunley Construction Company, Inc. celebrated its official 60th anniversary on September 13, 2015.

A family-owned company, Grunley was originally founded in 1955 as Grunley, Walsh and Blanche, Inc. and started with a team of three, one of whom was co-founder Martin Grunley, (who passed away at age 98 in April of this year). The company grew quickly and became known for several difficult and extensive modernizations to historic landmarks throughout Washington including the White House, the Blair House (the President’s guest house), the Library of Congress and the Cannon House Office Building.

Each year our YCF Steering Committee puts together a team for CANstruction to get our creative juices flowing and help fight hunger with the Capital Area Food Bank. This year's theme is "Transportation," and they have decided to build the SmarTrip card (in 3D no less).

However, they NEED YOUR HELP! This year's structure will include more than 3500 cans and various leveling and adhesive materials. Although a partnership with Safeway provides a discount and delivery of cans, our team still needs to raise $6000 to purchase cans and supplies.
