Reminder: ShelterBox HERO
Want your Club to become a ShelterBox HERO?  Here’s how you can achieve that —
A ShelterBox HERO is any Rotary Club that has committed to making an impact in worldwide disaster response by giving $1,000, $3,000, or $5,000 to that effort within the Rotary year.

Currently, in Rotary International Zone 29, our District 6450 is ranked #2 of the 16 districts in our Zone.  So far, during this Rotary Year, D6450 has committed $22,360 to worldwide Shelter Box Disaster Relief.  
Can your Club help push D6450 into first place in Zone 29?  If so, you must act before June 30th, 2022.  Check out how you can accomplish that here:
