BUILD-A-THON 2018

BUILD-A-THON 2018

About This Campaign

What is Build-A-Thon?

Its an awesome and one-of-a-kind 24-hour on campus competitive fundraising event, in which teams (of 4-5 students) fundraise during the weeks leading up to BAT and are awarded building materials according to the amount of money they raise.  Using these materials, each team builds a shelter to sleep overnight to raise awareness about inadequate housing conditions. Remember, the more your team fundraised, the more materials and supplies you received to build and the crazier you can get!


All building materials and money then go towards helping Habitat for Humanity of Greater Plainfield & Middlesex County build homes for families in need.
