Rotary Club of Pullman Aug. 3 donated $1,036 to ShelterBox USA to help families around the world rebuild their lives after losing everything to natural disaster or conflict.

The funds will be used to provide shelter and equipment to set up a household, which could include relief tents, tools to repair damaged buildings, as well as supplies such as solar lights, water purification, thermal blankets and cooking utensils.

“We are grateful to contribute hope and life-saving supplies to families facing the enormity of loss after a natural disaster,” said Colleen Hinman, Pullman Rotary President.

Funds were raised by personal donations made by Pullman club members in support of ShelterBox, the first officially recognized project partner of Rotary International and remains Rotary’s only project partner in disaster relief. To-date, the Rotary Club of Pullman has donated $7,836 to ShelterBox over the past 10 years.
