But, one month on, ShelterBox has already committed enough aid for 6,432 families, and is the only shelter agency to have reached some of the remote islands.  You can help. 
All donations made at the January 24-26 show will be matched dollar for dollar, up to $10,000, by show management, Berg Productions.  Visit the Eugene Delta Rotary Club exhibit as they present ShelterBox USA.  Stop in and learn what comes in the Box to a family served by this NGO.  ShelterBox delivers the essential supplies to families from Syria to Haiti – full details at  ShelterBoxUSA.org
