Special Shelterbox Acknowledgement
The Fernandina Beach Rotary Club recently recognized Ken Meeks, a visiting Rotarian, for his contribution of $1,000 to the club’s ShelterBox program. ShelterBox provides a host of items, including tents, water cleaning apparatus, and other necessary supplies to victims of natural and man-made disasters throughout the world. The Fernandina Beach Rotary Club collects money each week to fund ShelterBoxes and has paid for 15 to be distributed to disaster zones in both the U.S. and other countries. Meeks is a member of the Upper Keys Rotary Club, but spends part of the year in Fernandina Beach where he has attended the local club for several years. He was so impressed with the club ‘s commitment to ShelterBox that he donated the $1,000 to fund the club’s 16 box.
