Shack-A-Thon, Other Efforts Earn NC State Habitat for Humanity Chapter Recognition

Over 600 supporters crowded the North Raleigh Hilton Grand Ballroom Wednesday morning for Habitat for Humanity Wake County’s Blueprint Breakfast: the organization’s largest annual event. The gathering is a culminating celebration and fundraiser for the group that provides housing for low-income families throughout Wake County.

Along with comments from families helped by Habitat builds, top volunteers were recognized at the event.  NC State’s Habitat for Humanity team was recognized as a Bronze Hammer volunteer. The recognition level is designated for organizations having contributed $20,000 – $34,999 to Habit for Humanity this year.

NC State Habitat for Humanity team has used fundraising activities like Shack-a-thon to become one of Habitat’s top contributors, but the group’s efforts are not limited to North Carolina. Many members of the group spent last week building homes in Birmingham, Alabama.

Today’s event also marks Habitat Wake’s 30th anniversary, with over 500 homes built to date. Over 1,000 families have been impacted by the organization’s efforts.
