Shelter Box

Our amazing guest speaker today is Rene Amy, he proudly serves as a volunteer "ambassador" for ShelterBox USA, raising awareness and much-needed funds to help provide shelter for those most at risk after natural disasters and human conflict.


ShelterBox provides humanitarian aid in the form of family-sized tents and essential tools to start repairing and rebuilding homes. Additionally, the organization’s kits and boxes contain items that help transform shelter into a home, like cooking sets, solar lights, blankets, water filtration, and mosquito nets. More than shelter, these items enable families to recover following disaster, providing a way to keep communities and families together and allowing them the space to focus on the future. 


Since 2000, ShelterBox has provided shelter, warmth, and hope following more than 300 disasters in over 100 countries. ShelterBox serves the most vulnerable families who have been displaced due to earthquake, volcano, flood, hurricane, cyclone, tsunami, or conflict by delivering essential shelter aid and life-saving supplies. ShelterBox’s core aid items include a disaster relief tent for an extended family, blankets, a water filtration system, emergency lighting, and other tools for survival. ShelterBox USA is based in Santa Barbara, and is Rotary's disaster-response partner. See for more.
