WKNC will be participating in and will be broadcasting live during this year’s Shack-A-Thon to raise money for Habitat for Humanity. Shack-A-Thon is an annual event organized by NCSU Habitat for Humanity. The goal of this event is to educate the campus community on the state of poverty housing in this country and abroad. Each year, student organizations build shacks on the brickyard and camp out there for a week, during which they ask students passing by to donate to their shack to raise money for Habitat for Humanity. All funds are then donated to build homes in Wake County and abroad. In previous years, over $25,000 was raised in spare change during Shack-A-Thon.
Here are some pictures from past years of Shack-A-Thon:
WKNC’s shack will be located in front of Harrelson Hall. Come out and visit and help us raise money for Habitat for Humanity. There will also be WKNC merch for sale all week long as well as prize giveaways.
