Sugarman, in turn, contacted all of the Rotary Club Presidents in Area 11 to see if they could add to the purchase. Immediately, David Hoopes, President of the Wantastiquet-Londonderry, VT Rotary Club and Lisa Souls, President of the Manchester, VT Rotary Club contacted Knapp to arrange a joint order of Shelter Boxes. Due to the urgent nature of the Haiti situation, an order for three Shelter Boxes was placed on January 15, 2010.
This is one more of the examples of the work, both locally and internationally, performed by Rotary using the funds derived from their many fund raising events. If you are interested in donating to the Haitian disaster relief effort, you can contact the Chester Rotary Club at firstname.lastname@example.org.
