HELP BUILD HOUSES AND HOPE

21 SHACKS, 5 DAYS, 1 HABITAT HOME

 

On September 18 - 22, 2017, over 1500 students will eat, sleep, and fundraise in unique student designed and built shacks on the historic Brickyard. The goal of the event is to come together as a campus community to raise money for Habitat for Humanity, and have a ton of fun doing it.

 

 

WHAT IS SHACK-A-THON?

 

Shack-A-Thon is a student-run fundraiser that started at NC State in 1998 with one shack and a few passionate students wanting to bring awareness to the issue of affordable housing.  Over the past 19 years, the event has raised more than $380,000 for Habitat for Humanity of Wake County. This year, over 50 student organizations will erect 26 shacks on the Brickyard and live in them 24/7 for the week. The goal for Shack-A-Thon 2017 is to raise $65,000, which is enough to fully fund the building of a Habitat for Humanity home. With the help of NC State and many other student organizations, the NC State Habitat for Humanity Chapter has helped sponsor and build 22 homes through Shack-A-Thon since it was founded in 1991. This year you can be a part of making home number 23 a reality.
