cald-hab-shacks-2The Caldwell Fellows had great success at this year’s Shack-a-Thon, raising $2,400 for Habitat for Humanity.

That included more than $1,000 in online donations, and meant that the Caldwell Fellows raised the second greatest amount of money among the 25 student organizations who took part in this year’s Shack-a-Thon on the Brickyard.

The Caldwell Fellows built their shack in eight hours out of scrap wood that was donated to the Habitat Re-Store after the shack was taken down. Fellows slept in the shack every night to raise money for Habitat for Humanity of Wake County.

The Caldwell Fellows program is an intensive leadership-development scholarship program that was created by the Alumni Association to honor the legacy of Chancellor John T. Caldwell.
