ShelterBox donations for Haiti from Rotary Club of Edmonton South

Posted by Giselle Gaboury
The Rotary Club of Edmonton South has raised $5550 for ShelterBox to assist with the disaster relief in Haiti. These are actually personal donations from individual club members but we would like to have our club recognized as making the contribution. Of course the individual donors would like tax receipts.
