Shelterbox in Action                                 Mary Sloan                  Mary & Jeff administering Polio Drops
 
Mary Sloan and Jeff Lichty visited Lakes Area Rotary Tuesday, January 25 and brought everything but the Shelterbox Tent with them.  After introducing many of our members to the history of Shelterbox which began with a Rotary club in England and grew to an International response to disasters around the world, we viewed some videos of recent disaster relief including the relatively new Shelter Kits that are available for people who do not need the full "box" but rather materials and tools to repair their homes.  The item that garnered the most amazement was the solar light with cell phone charging ability.  What an awesome item that is!  If you want to donate to Shelterbox you can do so at any level.  For a number of years this club committed to a $1000 donation per year and were recognized by Shelterbox for our consistent giving.  Thank you Mary and Jeff!  If you want learn more or donate: https://www.shelterboxusa.org.
