01/30/2010: "Donate Shelter Boxes for Haiti"
(The packaged Shelter Box even includes a tent- and the box is helpful too)
San Juan Island Rotary has purchased two Shelter Boxes for disaster relief that will be sent to Haiti, and will accept donations for additional ones.
For those concerned that money donated for Haiti may not get there, or if it does, will go to the wrong place, then the Shelter Box program is the how one may help the relief effort in Haiti with confidence the money will go where intended, as the program is tightly controlled, and each box is tracked as to when and where it goes, with the information reported back to the donor.
One Shelter box was purchased as a joint effort of Rotarians at their Wednesday meeting, and the second with Club matching funds. The cost of one Shelter Box is approximately $1,000.00, however SJI Rotary will continue their efforts to purchase additional Shelter Boxes during the coming weeks.
Donations to Shelter Box can be made directly to Shelter Box. or you may contact Yvonne Swanberg, President of San Juan Island Rotary firstname.lastname@example.org to make a donation to Rotary toward a Shelter Box.
