ShelterBox USA launches HERO program
Rotary International President John Germ’s theme for the 2016-2017 year is “Rotary Serving Humanity”. As an official project partner of Rotary International, ShelterBox has been partnering with Rotary since 2000 to provide emergency shelter to disaster survivors worldwide. It is because of the amazing support of Rotary Clubs and Rotary Districts across North America that so many families are helped every year.
ShelterBox USA now introduces the HERO Program which will take reinforce the collaboration and partnership with Roatry Clubs further, by expanding capacity to reach even more vulnerable families on their worst day ever.
A ShelterBox HERO is a Rotary Club who has committed to making an ongoing impact in global disaster response by pledging to support ShelterBox for three consecutive years. Natural and other disasters are inevitable and frequent, and the need is continuous. There are three HERO levels with commensurate levels of annual giving: Bronze ($1,000), Silver ($3,000) and Gold ($5,000).
Each HERO is awarded a HERO certificate, a digital banner for their website and is listed on the ShelterBox USA website: ShelterBoxUSA.org/Hero.
