Brittany Woodrum
ShelterBox Ambassador

My name is Brittney Woodrum, and I am a Rotary Peace Fellow candidate and ShelterBox ambassador. You may not realize this, but ShelterBox was founded as a Rotary club project over 20 years ago and has since grown into a prominent disaster relief organization, providing shelter to countless individuals experiencing crisis around the world. There has never been a greater need for this type of work than now, and it’s organizations like these that inspired me to study humanitarian assistance and dedicate my life to serving others. Currently, ShelterBox is playing a key role in the international COVID-19 response, helping to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to shelter in place despite their circumstances.

In an effort to support their mission, I am currently embarking on a monumental physical challenge called The Fourteeners Project. This coming July-October, I am planning to hike every one of Colorado’s 58 Fourteeners with the organization’s iconic ShelterBox on my back.
