On Wed. Sep.26, ShelterBox Rotary and Community Fundraising Manager, Tess Widdifield will be speaking with us about the history and purpose of this remarkable organization.  ShelterBox is a Rotary Project Partner who, with its global network of ShelterBox affiliates, collaboratively makes considered assessments and responses to natural disasters and conflict.  ShelterBox provides  emergency shelter and other essential non-food aid to displaced people around the world. 

Our interest in ShelterBox as a club comes out of our Grant Committee, led by Rotarian Anne Bermingham.  Tess is keen to help our Hamilton AM Club go forward solo or in consortium with some untapped community resources including smaller district clubs, Rotoract and even youth services, to foster opportunity and build out connections and bigger impact in order to advance Rotary and ShelterBox purposes. Come ready to  do some imagining and out of the (Shelter) box thinking!
