Volunteering at ShelterBox

Part of the action

Our volunteers

Every volunteer is instrumental in providing shelter to families after disaster, wherever they are in the world.

We are proud and grateful to have such a talented, passionate and committed group of people as our volunteers. They generously give us their skills, knowledge and time and are vital members of the ShelterBox family.

It’s an incredible feeling to be able to reach out and help people on the other side of the world in what is quite possibly the worst moment of their lives. That’s why I support ShelterBox.

– Pam Furnish, ShelterBox Volunteer
