The Rotary Club of Kelowna Sunrise has been recognized by ShelterBox Canada as a Bronze Level ShelterBox Hero in recognition of its financial contributions to ShelterBox Canada during the 2018-19 Rotary year ($1200-$3599).  On behalf of ShelterBox Canada, Marjolein Lloyd, club member and Ambassador for ShelterBox Canada, presented a certificate for the Bronze recognition at the club’s September 20th meeting.
The Rotary Club of Kelowna Sunrise has been a strong supporter of the work of ShelterBox Canada for many years.  For the past decade, the club has financed close to ten Shelter Boxes.
ShelterBox, a partner with Rotary International, is dedicated to helping ensure no family is left without shelter after a natural disaster or conflict – by going where others can’t, or won’t.  By providing emergency shelter and tools for families robbed of their homes by disaster, the not-for- profit organization strives to transform despair into hope.
All Rotarians and non-Rotarians are encouraged to make a donation to support ShelterBox’s mission.  To learn how to make a donation, or to seek out further information, visit
