Caldwells Take 3rd in Shack-A-Thon

Congratulations to Brian Schuster, captain of the Caldwell Shack-A-Thon team, and all the Caldwell Fellows and their families who participated in the Shack project. Thank you to all of our supporters who donated time, effort and dollars. This year we raised almost $3700.00 – a big increase over last year (and missing 2nd place by only $117) – which helped to bring the total to $28,310.00 raised this year at NC State for Habitat for Humanity – another record breaker! Shack-A-Thon educates the campus and the larger community about the state of poverty and housing in this country and abroad. During a single week, various NC State student groups constructed a shack on the Brickyard (Sunday, September 23), lived in it for five days and nights (Monday through Friday), and raised money from donations, a raffle and a cookout.
