Thanks to all who attended the fundraiser at Pietro’s Pizza to support ShelterBox, a disaster relief organization that provides emergency shelter for communities around the world devastated by disasters. Three Rotary inbound exchange students in the Salem area, including our student from Denmark, sponsored the event. They raised approximately $1340, including donations made by our very generous members at the May 3rd meeting.
ShelterBoxes contain family-sized tents specially designed to withstand the elements, and they contain other supplies as well, depending on the disaster and climate. Rotary exchange students usually take part in a ShelterBox fundraiser each year.
