Hi Everyone, My name is David Shah and I'm the President of Rutgers Enactus. Enactus is a community of student, academic and business leaders committed to using the power of entrepreneurial action to transform lives and shape a better more sustainable world. We participate annually in an event called Build-A-Thon through the wonderful organization, Habitat for Humanity. The way the event works, is such: Depending on the amount of money we raise, (which all goes to building infrastructure through Habitat for Humanity), our team will receive a certain amount of plywood and wooden boards. With these boards, our team builds a shack for about 5-7 hours which we then sleep in for the night. This is a humbling experience for many college students to live and sleep in a shack to represent the hardships the homeless population has within our community. We had an amazing experience last year, and we would love to allow more students to understand their social responsibility within our community. Thank you!
