Shelterbox Honours for Central West Libraries

Carol and Marion from Cowra Library were guests at a recent Rotary Dinner to receive a Certificate of Appreciation for collecting money for a Shelterbox  it brings shelter and beds to people who have become homeless and these boxes are distributed all over the world. Shelterboxes are sent worldwide to disaster areas and usually contain thermal blankets, a tent, tools and other survival equipment, light and heat and cooking aids. Since 2000, more than 600,000 people in some 46 countries have been assisted by ShelterBox … and the demand continues to exceed supply. Central West Libraries is now the proud sponsor of Shelterbox No. 4874 and everyone can follow up with the Shelterbox Website to see where it will be allocated – go to www.shelterbox.com.au click on honour roll and CWL is at the top of the list. Congrats to Carol and Marion for their unique fundraising idea  counting steps.
