ShelterBox is an international, disaster-relief organization that provides emergency shelter and vital supplies to support communities around the world overwhelmed by disaster and humanitarian crisis.
TJ high school students raised $,1000 for ShelterBox by filling up water bottles with dimes ($100 in each bottle) and sponsoring faculty dress down days on Fridays.
A special check presentation was held in the high school auditorium on Thursday, May 4, 2017 with the high school students, members of the Pleasant Hills Rotary Club and ShelterBox in attendance. Tom and Marie Grant of ShelterBox presented the Interact Club with a donor pennant and spoke about their organization and mission. The students also had the opportunity to see an actual ShelterBox and its supplies.
The TJHS Interact Club is sponsored by the Pleasant Hills Rotary Club and their members also contributed to this worthy cause.
