The Grossman Burn Foundation in Sherman Oaks is working with a company called Shelter Box to raise funds to purchase “Shelter Boxes” that will be shipped directly to Haiti and used to house displaced victims while rescue, recovery, and rebuilding efforts are underway. Each “Shelter Box” costs $1,000.

Shelter Box

Shelter Box started as a grassroots Rotary Club project in England to provide shelter for disaster victims around the globe. Every Shelter Box includes a ten-person tent that has privacy partitions which allow recipients to divide the space as they see fit, and is designed to withstand extreme temperatures, high winds and heavy rainfall. Additionally, each box contains children’s drawing books, crayons and pens, along with a range of survival equipment including thermal blankets and insulated ground sheets, a water purification system, a hammer, an axe, a saw, a trenching shovel, a hoe head, pliers, wire cutters, and either a wood burning or multi-fuel stove. Shelter Box handles all logistics and delivery, and every box is individually numbered so donors can track the status of their box via the ShelterBox.org website.
