Rotary Club of Summerside    

Recognition of Support for Shelter Box

 
 
The Rotary Club of Summerside was recently recognized for its support of the international "Shelter Box" program. The club received both a 
Bronze and Silver level recognition for its contribution to the program.

 
Rotary partners with ShelterBox to help devastated communities.
 

Rotary has supported ShelterBox from the start, when a local club championed the simple idea to package up essential shelter items in our now-iconic ShelterBoxes. As ShelterBox grew, so did Rotary support, and we are now international project partners in disaster relief.This partnership has helped us to become who we are today. Our global network of ShelterBox affiliates, which provides all round assistance, evolved from Rotary relationships.

Rotarians and Rotary groups all over the world help ShelterBox in a variety of ways. In addition to tireless fundraising, they provide invaluable assistance during our responses. With more than 33,000 clubs worldwide, Rotarians are able to give us first-hand knowledge of many of the countries in which we respond, logistical and operational assistance and vital links into communities.

 
Right now, around 85 million people around the world have been made homeless by natural disaster and conflict. We’re working to change this.
