Shack-a-thon is an annual advocacy event which aims to bring the community and various campus organizations together for fun and to support Habitat for Humanity’s cause. The groups build shacks out of cardboard, helping to raise awareness about poverty housing. It is an event that is held in various campus chapters around the country and is one of Habitat for Humanity’s largest advertising events. It is usually held in the fall semester at Purdue University. 

This year Shack-A-Thon will be held Thursday, October 8th from 10:00 am- 4:00 pm on Memorial Mall, Hello Walk.
