Staff Report 
Students of Habitat for Humanity at NC State are leading “Build-A-Block,” a record-setting campaign to build 11 townhomes on Lake Wheeler Road for Wake County families in need of affordable housing.
The project is the is largest-ever to involve a campus organization and a Habitat for Humanity affiliate. In collaboration with students, faculty, staff and alumni the campus chapter aims to raise $715,000 for the project.

Fundraising for the construction of the multi-home building project has already begun. Last week the campus chapter joined 46 other student organizations in the Brickyard for the annual student-run fundraiser, “Shack-A-Thon.”
All students are welcome to get involved. Those who want to learn more about Build-A-Block and opportunities can attend any one of the upcoming information sessions.
Build-A-Block information sessions are as follows:
Monday, September 28 @ 12:00 noon
Talley – Rm 4101
Tuesday, September 29 @ 5:30 p.m.
Witherspoon – Rm 201
Wednesday, September 30 @ 2:00 p.m. 
Hunt Library – Rm 4106
Wednesday, September 30 @ 7:30 p.m.

“Over the course of the project, there will be hundreds of opportunities for individual students and student groups to coordinate build days,” said Student Leadership and Engagement marketing and communications coordinator Aaron Thompson.
“So, this is really an opportunity for students to get hands-on experience and to learn, in a literal way, what it means to build community through service.”
Families will work alongside volunteers to begin construction of the 11 townhomes in August of 2016.
