We can’t predict disasters, but with your support, we can be ready to respond providing displaced families with the life-saving aid they need right when they need it most.
When disaster strikes, families lose their homes, possessions and livelihoods.
Help ShelterBox be ready with lifesaving shelter and supplies when disaster strikes by donating a ShelterBox of critical aid items to help a family who has lost everything.
From August 1, 2021, through September 30, 2021, you can help ShelterBox Canada raise funds to restock our warehouses and prepare to respond to disasters around the world by fundraising for or donating to our annual Stock the Box fundraiser.
We urgently need support to prepare, respond and restock, helping families who have lost everything.

Tools to rebuild home, stronger.
Blankets not only provide vital warmth, but comfort too when families are recovering from disaster.
The ability to cook a warm meal shared by a family can mean much more than just a full stomach.
Heavy-duty tarps, fixing and everything else a family needs to repair, rebuild or begin a new foundation for their lives.
Our custom-made disaster relief tents give families a safe place to recover and sleep at night following a disaster.
Our sturdy green ShelterBoxes are designed for people who have lost everything and contain a set of aid items. The contents differ depending on the disaster and the climate, but items such as tents, solar lights, water storage and purification equipment, thermal blankets and cooking utensils help start the process of creating a home.
Step 1: Create your own online fundraising page. Do it on your own or encourage your Rotary Club to come together to Stock the Box. Prefer to receive pledges offline? Print off your physical pledge form here and begin collecting in person.
Step 2: Set your goal. You can pick the cost of an aid item as your goal or you can choose to fill an entire ShelterBox by setting your goal at $1,200. Every dollar you raise will still support families in desperate need of shelter and other essential aid after a disaster.
Step 3: Get Stocking! Begin stocking your box, item by item, dollar by dollar until you reach your goal! Reach out to friends, family, Rotarians, and other potential supporters to ask them to support your Stock the Box goal.
What your support can do
Every Box Holds a Story
Behula and her family live on a small island on the Brahmaptura river in north-west Bangladesh. Families who live near of on the river know that monsoon rains will cause the river levels will rise, but the heavy rains in 2019 were much worse than expected.
After Behula’s home collapsed during the flooding in 2019, Behula and her family were supported by ShelterBox and the Bangladesh Red Crescent. They received a shelter kit and other essential aid items, almost five months after the floods, Behula was still using the materials provided by ShelterBox.
Knowing they cannot move away from the river, Behula said she will continue to make her home stronger to be prepared for potential flooding in future years.
