Shelter Box USA

An international organization is working to help people around the world following natural disaster and conflict.

Shelter Box USA partners with Rotary International to provide emergency shelter and tools for displaced families.

Hurricane season is focusing attention on budget decisions the White House has made that could undermine storm tracking and predictions.
