Rotary Minute: Rotary and ShelterBox prepare for hurricane season

Published 7:37 pm Friday, August 17, 2018

ShelterBox is an international disaster relief charity that works with Rotary International to provide temporary shelter and lifesaving supplies to displaced families anywhere in the world. Each ShelterBox typically contains a tent designed to withstand extreme weather conditions, water purification kit, blankets, tools and other necessities to help a family survive after a disaster. The contents of a ShelterBox can be further tailored to fit the nature and location of a disaster.

As hurricane season “heats up,” Rotary International and ShelterBox are preparing now to deploy lifesaving assistance when and wherever they are needed. Just one more way Rotarians are working to make a positive difference in the world.
