Shell Berry introduced our guest speaker Frank Spears, Ambassador for ShelterBox. Frank discussed his involvement with ShelterBox. ShelterBox is a global disaster relief charity that provides immediate emergency shelter and other lifesaving aid to survivors of a disaster or humanitarian crisis. ShelterBox is a nonprofit that relies on private donations to provide emergency shelter to disaster survivors. ShelterBox does not receive funding from any government entity. Funding is from individuals and organizations including Rotary Clubs.
In April 2000, the Rotary Club of Helston-Lizard in Cornwall, England started ShelterBox as its millennium project. In 2002, ShelterBox’s American affiliate was adopted as a project of the Rotary Club of Lakewood Ranch in Sarasota, FL. In 2004, ShelterBox USA was officially established as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
Following the presentation, President Scott led us in reciting the four way test and then adjourned the meeting.
