Service above self: Brattleboro Sunrise Rotary Club raises funds for disaster survivors a world away
Brattleboro, Vermont, June 2016 -- The Brattleboro Sunrise Rotary Club recently raised $1,000 from their Dinner Raffle to benefit ShelterBox, a humanitarian relief charity that assists survivors of disaster and humanitarian crises around the globe. “Our members, along with those of the more than 33,000 clubs worldwide, focus on 'service above self', the Rotary mission,” said Alisa Barry, the current President of the Brattleboro Sunrise Rotary Club. “We are passionately committed to helping others in need, both locally and globally. This modest donation to ShelterBox is one of the many ways we as Rotarian's can reach beyond our local community to assist others throughout the world in times of great tragedy.” The Brattleboro Sunrise Rotary Club members work toward improving the community through business and civic partnerships that benefit area programs serving a variety of charitable causes.
ShelterBox provides humanitarian aid—emergency tented shelter and other supplies, such as stoves, blankets and water filtration systems, among other tools to help families rebuild their lives after losing their homes and possessions following a disaster such as earthquake, volcano, flood, hurricane, cyclone, tsunami or conflict.
The organization is currently responding to disasters in Ecuador, Fiji, Paraguay, Democratic Republic of North Korea, Niger, Cameroon and Syria region. “You never know when the next disaster might strike,” said Kerri Murray, President of ShelterBox USA. “With generous donations such as this one from the Brattleboro Sunrise Rotary Club, we can continue our mission of providing shelter, warmth and dignity to disaster survivors around the world including the most recent earthquakes in Ecuador.”
Since 2000, ShelterBox has provided humanitarian aid—emergency tented shelter and other supplies, to help families rebuild their lives after losing their homes and possessions following a disaster such as earthquake, volcano, flood, hurricane, cyclone, tsunami or conflict.

This morning we bid farewell to four of our six Student Rotarians. The time has passed quickly but the memories we have shared will last a lifetime. We wish them the best and know that they will all accomplish great things!
May 29th was the Camp for a Common Cause and Sunrise Rotary was represented again. People from the community showed their support for others experiencing homelessness by camping out for one night on the Brattleboro Common. Folks involved had a great time. Rotarians ran the BBQ in the evening. Together, the Sunrise and Brattleboro Rotary Clubs raised over $1,800 for Groundworks Collaborative!
Every year, Rescue, Inc. is there for us and the players at our 3-on-3 tournament. They provide expertise and triage in case there are any bumps during the action. It was our pleasure to say "thank you" with a donation. Guest Kyle LaPointe from Rescue, Inc. accepts a $500 check from 3 on 3 co-chair Kevin Yager.
