Members of the Cheyenne Community Rotaract, a young professionals group associated with the Rotary Club of Cheyenne, will be pitching a tent in the Depot Plaza for 24 hours to raise awareness and donations for Shelterbox.

The Shelterbox organization prepares and distributes survival boxes to disaster areas.

Each Shelterbox costs $1,000 which includes the packaging and distribution of a tent that can hold up to 10 adults, stove, water purification tablets, miscellaneous tools, dishes, cookware and blankets that can sustain 10 people for up to six months.

Cheyenne Community Rotaract members will be staying in a Shelterbox tent from Friday May 11th at 5 p.m. until Saturday May 12th at 5 p.m. They will be using only the materials found in the relief packages.

In 2010, Cheyenne Community Rotaract held a similar camp out and raised $4,000 to send four Shelterboxes to areas of Haiti and Chile that were rocked by major earthquakes. In 2011, they raised $1,700 to send Shelterboxes to victims of the tsunami that hit Japan.

Donations can be dropped of at the camp out area in the Depot Plaza or by mailing a check to Shelterbox, Cheyenne Community Rotaract, P.O. Box 2794, Cheyenne, WY 82003.
