Miles for Moffitt

USF Sarasota-Manatee students outside ShelterBox tent

On first look, a “ShelterBox” appears to contain nothing more than a tent and some camping gear. In reality, it’s a collection of tools that will help a displaced family survive after a disaster.
This week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7 visits a group of students who spent two nights in a ShelterBox tent on the USF Sarasota-Manatee campus to raise funds for the Bay area-based organization behind this worldwide life-saving effort.
