Gilford Rotary Aids Typhoon Haiyan Relief with Sheltebox Donation


GILFORD — Members of Gilford Rotary have donated $1,000 to provide a Shelterbox to aid in disaster relief following the typhoon in the Philippines.

International disaster relief organization, Shelterbox, is working in the Philippines following what meteorologists are calling the most powerful storm ever to make landfall. The charity has provided humanitarian assistance following more than 200 disasters in over 90 countries.

Shelterbox instantly responds to typhoons, earthquakes, floods, tsunamis and other disasters or conflict by delivering emergency shelter and other humanitarian supplies. Each green Shelterbox contains a disaster relief tent for an extended family, stove, blankets and water filter, among other tools for survival.
