Every step at Cowra Library raises money for Shelter Boxes

By June 19, 2008No Comments

Caroline Eisenhauer and Marion Mitchell Read at Cowra Library are counting their every step and asking patrons to sponsor them or donate funds to Cowra Rotary Club's Shelterbox project. ShelterBox helps in disaster zones and usually contains thermal blankets, a tent, tools and other survival equipment, light and heat and cooking aids. Rotary is trying to send more to Myanmar (Burma) since Cyclone Nargis destroyed large portions of the country. The pair are wearing pedometers to count steps. Caroline is averaging 8,000 a day while Marion is not far behind her averaging 5,000. Call in to the Library to see the Shelterbox display and show your support with a donation to this worthy cause. Caroline and Marion will feature in the Cowra Guardian and they are pictured here courtesy of Janine Finlayson of Rural Press Ltd.
