GFWC Lutz-Land O’lakes Woman’s Club recently hosted guest speaker Mike Mira, a “Hall of Fame” Ambassador and Zone Director of ShelterBox, an international disaster relief charity. Mr. Mira gave a very informative presentation on this organization which provides almost immediate aid on the basis of needs when an emergency disaster strikes. ShelterBox is a non-government non-profit which responds very quickly to new disasters on average every 2 weeks and has deployed response teams and equipment in the U.S. and elsewhere around the globe in hurricanes and other catastrophes, providing immediate shelter and necessary supplies to aid victims. Club International Outreach Chair Elayne Bassinger presented ShelterBox with a donation on behalf of the Woman’s Club.
