Nancy Penny, Burlington Rotary Club and a Paul Harris Fellow, is presenting our club with a Bronze Award certificate for giving to Shelter Box.
Shelter Box is a charity supported by Rotary to dispatch aid relief (literally shelters in a box) around the world (including Canada if the need arises) at a moments notice.

Simultaneously  our Mike Cobb,  International Service Director and club President Dave King are presenting Nancy with a cheque for $2,500 to drive us to the Silver level of giving.
Nancy explained to us that, while she is personally not the person to visit international disaster sites , she believes strongly in this humanitarian aid and gives back by volunteering to drive to Rotary Clubs across Ontario to showcase "what's inside"  the Shelter Box.
The Shelter  Box contains a tent, blankets, steel cook ware, utensils, solar lights, a shovel, basic tools and water purification sufficient to house a family of 5-8 people. A family can be warm, dry and supply the most basic needs while they rebuild their lives.
