On Monday, November 11, club foundation members voted to donate $1,000 to Rotary International’s partner ShelterBox USA in the wake of the super-sized, super devastating Typhoon Haiyan that struck the island nation last week.
The shelter boxes come complete with tent, blankets, cooking utensils (including a stove), water purification and storage system and items needed that are particular to the region they are sent.
Partnering with District 5100, the club’s contribution will be matched by the district 1:1, which means 2 boxes bearing the name of our ‘small but mighty club‘ will be loaded on the next available transport to help families devastated by this terrible storm.
