About a month ago, Sept. 22 to the 24 to be exact, a group of young people from SU and SUNY ESF came together for an exciting annual project. The Shack-A-Thon, a three day build festival held at SU’s main quad, led to the construction of around 15 shacks for Syracuse Habitat homeowners and generous buyers alike. Students in the SU/ESF Habitat for Humanity built the shacks from scratch…gathering materials, pounding nails, putting the shacks together and decorating! Here are photos from the event:

Every Thursday Syracuse Habitat for Humanity will look through our photo collection and post a Photo of the Week. You can participate too! If you have a photo or story that you would like to share, please send an email to email@example.com
Thank you and enjoy the pictures!
We, at SHFH, are really excited about our upcoming Mr. Habitat Auction! In fact…it’s less than three days way on Sunday, Oct. 24, from 4 to 7 PM @ the Sheraton Syracuse University Hotel & Conference Center.
What can you expect from this event? First, you have to know that the highlight, must-see feature is the MAN AUCTION. Yes, that’s right; Men will walk the stage with a donated good or service and audience members will have the opportunity to bid on these items. This MAN AUCTION is a unique, one-of-a-kind event rarely seen in major auctions. It gets better: the man with the most bids wins the title of Mr. Habitat and receives VIP gifts for a year!
Second, the SILENT AUCTION will offer an expansive and diverse collection of donated goods and services from local businesses and generous individuals in the area: gift cards, prize packs, vacation passes, high-end retail – the offerings are limitless.
Third, all proceeds go towards the Syracuse Habitat Women Build. This program provides local women with job skills at our build sites. Mr. Habitat is one of the key events that raises awareness as well as important funds towards this program.
Finally, we really need our attendees to RSVP for the event. You can do so by filling out a quick online form here: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/Z7J22XD
See you Sunday!
