THANK YOU

 

Dear The Rotary Club Of Willowdale,

Thank you so much for your Club’s donation of $1,000.00 to ShelterBox Canada! 

Your Club's support and generosity will make a life-changing impact on people affected by disaster around the world. This gift will provide customized shelter and essential supplies to help people rebuild their homes and restart their lives.

Last year, with the help of our global supporters, ShelterBox was able to provide aid to over 325,000 people — all thanks to people like you! Your support will ensure that no matter where disaster strikes, we can be there to help people lead their own recovery.

We are so proud of our project partnership with Rotary International and the incredible impact we make together. At ShelterBox, our vision is to see a world where no one is without shelter after disaster. Thank you for believing in our mission and for ensuring we are always ready to help when we’re needed most.

If you have any questions about your donation or about our responses, please do not hesitate to call me at 647-352-1930

Kind Regards,
