At our Feb.15 Rotary meeting, Katherine Fick, member of the ShelterBox Response Team talked about her role responding to many disasters for ShelterBox. Among these were Dominican Republic (Hurricanes Irma and Maria), Peru (floods and mudslides) and Malawi (rural floods) and Paraguay (urban floods). Her first-hand experiences expanded our appreciation of the very necessary work done by ShelterBox. Katherine thanked the club for the $10,000 donation from the proceeds of Oktoberfest 2017, and presented the Club with a certificate recognizing the Rotary Club of Concord as a ShelterBox hero. The $10,000 will purchase 10 ShelterBoxes or 100 ShelterKits.
