A Shelter Box is a family-sized tent of sorts, made for living in following disasters, which are happening around our world with increasing frequency, says Carley Rando of Rotaract Cheyenne. She enlisted CSR's help in their ongoing project to purchase shelter boxes, each at $1,000, which serve as temporary housing here in the USA following the Houston, Texas flooding, in the Haiti disaster of a few years ago and much more.
    Rando says her club has done 24-hour camp outs at the Cheyenne depot in the past, but has now shifted to a "Passport" program in conjunction with all three Cheyenne Rotary Clubs. Local businesses are asked to sign up and offer discounts at their business to those holding a "Passport" which they purchase for $20.
   Her Rotaract club's goal is to raise ten thousand dollars through the program, which would purchase ten shelter boxes. For more information please email her at
