In the spirit of their motto, “Service Above Self”, the Columbia Capital Rotary Club members internally raised $2,425 that funded two shelter boxes tremendously helping people in need in the Philippines. Each durable shelter box was shipped and contained essential resources such as:
- A tent, blankets, insulated ground sheets, mosquito nets,
- Water purification kits,
- Cooking supplies such as pans, utensils, bowls, mugs and water storage containers,
- A basic tool kit containing a hammer, axe, saw, trenching shovel, hoe head, pliers and wire cutters,
- A children’s pack containing drawing books, crayons and other supplies.
