On August 14, a 7.2 magnitude earthquake struck the small country of Haiti, which was still struggling from a major earthquake in 2010. Over 800,000 homes were damaged or destroyed and water systems damaged, leaving a shortage of safe drinking water.
As we did in 2010, Chittenango Rotary Club stepped up by partnering with Shelterbox, a global, nonprofit, non-governmental organization that works to provide shelter in areas devastated by natural disasters or conflict. 
Chittenango Rotary's board of directors agreed to match member donations. Together, we raised over $1200, enough to purchase a complete Shelterbox, which provides a family with a tent or materials to repair a home plus cooking materials and other items needed to survive.
