Practical Help For Haiti

Fundraiser At VIU Supports
Shelter Boxes For Haiti

The Shelter Box program is an initiative of the Rotary Club that started in England 10 years ago.

Each Shelter Box contains a 10 person tent, 10 sleeping bags, tools and equipment,
water purification equipment and tablets, hand crank radio, cooking and eating supplies including a stove (designed to burn anything flammable), the basic necessities to shelter up to 10 people.

There will be a donation table set up at VIU on the main floor of the library until Friday and will be staffed from 10:00 am - 4:00 pm each day. Each box costs $1,000 and there are 3,000 boxes scheduled for Haiti with an urgent need for thousands more.

If you can help, this is a great way of providing very practical help through a trusted organization who will get the help to those who need it. To learn more about the Shelter Box program visit their website using this LINK.
