May 20: Chelsea High School Interact Club Fundraiser

(Chelsea Update would like to thank Shasta Grifka for the information in this story.)

Demonstrating their commitment to global disaster relief, members of Chelsea High School’s Interact Club will be staying overnight in a Shelter Box on May 23.

In the lead-up to their overnight stay, the Interact Club will host a Share Night at Culver’s in Chelsea on Monday, May 20, from 5 to 8 p.m.

The money raised during this event will contribute to the cost of a ShelterBox, an essential resource for those displaced by emergencies.

This initiative, part of their support for ShelterBox, aims to raise awareness and funds to assist families affected by disasters worldwide.

Rotary, known for its motto “Service Above Self,” has partnered extensively with ShelterBox to provide practical assistance beyond just financial support. Rotary clubs globally play a crucial role in helping ShelterBox reach more families fleeing disaster or conflict by offering invaluable hands-on aid.

ShelterBox teams, composed of dedicated volunteers, respond rapidly to crises, whether caused by natural disasters or human conflict. For instance, following the devastating earthquake in Ecuador in April, ShelterBox provided immediate assistance to the affected families. They have also been instrumental in aiding those fleeing the ongoing conflicts in the Middle East.

The iconic green Shelter Boxes, branded with Rotary’s logo, are tailored to meet the specific needs of each emergency situation.

Typically, these boxes include family-sized tents, solar lights, water storage and purification equipment, thermal blankets, and cooking utensils. Depending on the situation, ShelterBox also provides ShelterKits, which contain tools, ropes, and heavy tarpaulins for emergency shelter and repairing damaged structures.

The upcoming events organized by Chelsea High School’s Interact Club highlight the active involvement of young people in global humanitarian efforts. The community is encouraged to support these initiatives by attending the Share Night and contributing to a cause that brings hope and relief to those in dire need.

For more information on how to support or participate in these events, please contact Chelsea High School Interact Club or visit Culver’s in Chelsea on May 20.
