The returns are in on the recent ShelterBox online matching pledge fundraiser.

Several SRC members took advantage of the opportunity to pledge up to $100 each, which was matched dollar-for-dollar by a foundation during a 24-hour period.

Overall, the nationwide drive raised $35,000 in that one day span which means proceeds of the drive will purchase 35,000 temporary tent homes plus equipment for use in disaster areas around the world.

Thanks to all SRC Rotarians who participated in the drive.
