In an effort to help provide disaster relief for people around the world, Sno Road Winery is supporting the ShelterBox project.
The Echo winery is helping the effort through the sale of the Shelter Box 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine is $38 per bottle and $19 of each purchase goes to the Rotary International’s ShelterBox USA Disaster Relief Program.
ShelterBoxes arrive in a sturdy green container and are designed to help people who have lost everything. They are filled with practical tools and utensils. Each contains a family-sized tent that protects people from the elements and provides a safe space in which people can start to recover. The contents differ depending on the disaster and the climate, but items such as solar lights, water storage and purification equipment, thermal blankets and cooking utensils help start the process of creating a home.
For more information or to make a purchase, call 541-376-0421 or stop by Sno Road Winery, 111 W. Main St., Echo. For more about the ShelterBox program, visit www.shelterbox.org.
