A mega “Thank you” to Jess Gutzwiler who has organized The Shelter Box Challenge. We are currently at nearly $10,000 in commitments with more funds anticipated.
ShelterBox was started by a Rotary club back in 2000 and together we have sheltered 2,000,000 people worldwide.
Each box contains life-saving items including a family-sized tent or shelter kit for shelter, water filters, mosquito nets, solar lights, blankets and more.
  • Rotary and ShelterBox are project partners in disaster relief, bringing hope and homes to families displaced by earthquakes, flooding, hurricanes, and conflict.
  • There are 113 million people currently displaced and 75% are women and children.  You can help us change that!
  • If all 39 clubs in the District donate to ShelterBox, DG Cheryl will kiss a pig while our District helps families in need worldwide.
On August 14th, a powerful category 7.2 magnitude earthquake struck Haiti.  Together, ShelterBox, Rotary and Habitat for Humanity are providing shelters to families displaced by the quakes.
