Shelterbox Appeal

Following the deadly explosion in Beirut, St John Fisher College and Rotary Aspley are joining forces t​o provide relief through an initiative called Shelterbox. The explosion has killed at least 170 people, injured 65000 and left 300,000 people without homes, decimating the city and livelihoodof locals.


Shelterboxes​ are large green boxes containing family-sized tents designed to withstand elements, providing emergency shelter to those affected, until they can rebuild their home. One shelter box costs $1100 and every dollar is one step towards providing the temporary shelter many families need in emergencies. 

Kicking off the efforts with a good old fashion, coin line, the girls have raised $453 with the tally to continue as fundraising continues in term 4. To strengthen appeal efforts, the College will be running a radio campaign, calling on others to donate what they can to this worthy cause.
