Rotary and SHELTERBOX form a unique partnership in global disaster relief. ShelterBox has provided immediate shelter, tools and supplies to more than a million people globally whose lives have been devastated by natural disaster and conflict.

Rotary Club of Marietta believes in our motto of "Service Above Self." In addition to local MOV projects, our club has committed to funding five ShelterBox kits to help disaster survivors around the world.

A ShelterBox typically contains a family tent, thermal and ground blankets, water storage and purification equipment, solar lamps, cooking utensils, basic tool kit, mosquito nets and children's activity pack.

***Our club goal is $5,000 to purchase five complete ShelterBox kits. WILL YOU HELP? Gifts of every amount make a difference. Link to GoFundMe:…

Look for our displays at Peoples Bank and in upcoming local summer festival events. Or call 740/350-2323 for more information.
