What Have We Done Lately?
Bringing shelter to people affected by recent hurricanes: Each year, our club provides funding to Shelterbox, an organization deploying emergency shelter to communities devastated by disaster and crises worldwide. After Hurricane Harvey hit Houston, our club increased our support domestically. We'd like to raise more money to help those affected by Hurricane Irma, as well as other storms to come.
