ShelterBox and Rotary: Partnering for Impact
We've just launched a 'ShelterBox and Rotary: Partnering for Impact' Facebook Group, and we'd love to have you join us ?
We are proud to be project partners with Rotary International, and we're always looking for opportunities to collaborate with Rotarians, and Rotary Clubs, nationwide - so that together, we can further our collective impact, and make an even greater difference in the communities that we both serve.
We have set up this Facebook Group, as a place for Rotarians, and the ShelterBox NZ team, to come together - to share resources, ideas, information, inspiration, and more.
Join us today!
Red Cross Curtain Bank
“Rotary opens Opportunities” The Taradale Rotary Club have been helping in the community once again and over a number of weeks, Club members have rallied around gathering preloved curtains to support the local Red Cross Curtain Bank.
President Claire Connor and members of the Taradale Rotary Club collated over 40 used, nearly new and pre-loved sets of curtains and donated them to the Red Cross Curtain Bank depot in Onekawa. Curtains were gathered from their own homes; from family and friends; and even found some sets of curtains that had been stashed away (for a rainy day)!!!!
A big shout out to Spotlight Hastings and Store Manager Martine Capper who donated curtains that had been returned or were damaged shop stock, together with a personal donation of curtain tape and hooks. These curtains have been saved from going to landfill – instead they will be helping families in the community to have warmer and healthier homes.
Red Cross Curtain Bank volunteers repair, and refurbish the curtains where necessary, adding or replacing lining, curtain tapes, hooks etc. The Curtain Bank receives referrals from social agencies and matches or adapts the curtains they have in stock. The curtains are then given to a family to enhance the health and wellbeing of the people in their homes.
If you have curtains you no longer need, and for more information about how you can help the Red Cross Curtain Bank, please contact Bonnie on 029 1210299
