ShelterBox support from U.S. clubs through RY 2021-22 was incredible, with 10% of all Rotary clubs in the U.S. achieving HERO club status.
ShelterBox responded to crisis all over the globe helping tens of thousands of households. As we turn the page to a new Rotary Year, we hope to continue building our total number of HERO clubs in 2022-23. Let’s do all we can to help even more families affected by conflict and disaster.
ABOUT HERO Recognition: HERO recognition is open to Rotary clubs, Districts, Rotaract, Interact, EarlyAct, RYLA, RYE, Rotary Community Corps, Friendship Exchanges, District and RI Fellowships, Action Groups, and any club or district approved group.  HERO is a recognition, not a pledge. Individual donations count towards club HERO club progress. Awards are distributed quarterly via ShelterBox Ambassadors or from myself.
 Clubs can level up through the Rotary year (become a bronze, then donate more to reach silver or gold).

IMAGINE, the impact a district full of HERO clubs would make for people displaced and in need of ShelterBox aid. With your help, we can turn imagination into reality.
Thank you so much, your support and advocacy are truly appreciated.
