A ShelterBox HERO is a Rotary Club who has committed to making an ongoing impact in worldwide disaster response by pledging to support ShelterBox annually for three consecutive years.  Sustained annual donations help ShelterBox stay prepared for upcoming disasters.  This Spring, the Rotary Club of Long Grove, Kildeer and Hawthorn Woods was pleased to make its third consecutive donation in support of this organization.  
In 2018 with the support of Rotary Clubs from around the world, ShelterBox provided supplies for 210,000 people whose lives were devestated by disaster.
They were able to respond to world events 18 times, sending a variety of essential shelter and aid items to 17 different countries.
Ten of the countries they operated in were affected by natural disasters, in most of which Rotary clubs provided invaluable in-country assistance.
Each year, Rotary helps ShelterBox go further, support more people and access areas that would otherwise be impossible to reach.
