The Fine Arts Club at IU South Bend has created a 14 foot tall paper mache giving tree for a food drive Thursday.

The tree is made up of mostly outdated suggestion slips donated by Martin’s Supermarkets. 

Since February, when Martin’s approached them with the idea, 12 members of the club put about 120 hours into the tree. It took 60 gallons of wheat paste, all those suggestion slips, and a bit of newspaper to build the structure.
