ShelterBox: Rotary’s Disaster Relief Program (Aired on AM on June 21 & on FM on June 23, 2013)

A ShelterBox Ambassador was interviewed “live” at a meeting of the Red Hook Rotary at the Bread and Bottle Restaurant in Red Hook. ShelterBox is a program that provides disaster relief in the form of a specially designed tent that can hold an entire family and also the tools, food, cookware, and water filtration needed to support that family for up to half a year. Before deploying the ShelterBoxes, which resemble trunk-sized Tupperware boxes, a highly trained team of SRT’s (Shelterbox Relief Team members) performs reconnaissance of the disaster and its needs.
