Sunrise International Director Gerry Warner is very glad to report to the club that to date he has raised almost $7,000 for the ShelterBox Nepal earthquake campaign. Around $500 of that came from Sunrise Rotary Club members. And there's still time to donate! Another $6,490 came from Cranbrook Daily Townsman readers after Warner wrote a feature about a ShelterBox presentation he made at T.M. Roberts Elementary School. And there should be some more money coming from there. This is all very gratifying and I'm sure it will impress Sunrise Rotary member Alex McLeod, who along with his wife Tricia, extended their Nepal "vacation" to work with the Nepalese people to aid in the rebuilding of the devastated, Himalayan country.
So I would just like to greatly thank all the club members who have assisted in this program and remind everyone that the ShelterBox program is ongoing because the next disaster is only a matter of time.

The first ShelterBox aid distributed in Nepal has gone to medical staff from damaged hospitals in Kathmandu so that they have safe, covered spaces to treat patients
