Lumber Liquidators donated $25,000 to ShelterBox USA to help provide tents and lifesaving supplies for families affected by Typhoon Haiyan. ShelterBox USA delivers compact kits and other emergency supplies tailored to the needs of disaster survivors. They distribute boxes of aid and other supplies to displaced families to help them endure the immediate aftermath of a catastrophe. The boxes contain essential supplies such as tents, blankets, tool kits, water purification equipment, stoves and children’s activity kits. Since its inception in 2000, ShelterBox USA has provided emergency shelter for people in the aftermath of more than 200 disasters in 90 countries.
