University Beat: USFSM Students Sleep in Tent for Disaster Relief Charity

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.

WUSF 89.7 depends on donors for the funding it takes to provide you the most trusted source of news and information here in town, across our state, and around the world. Support WUSF now by giving monthly, or make a one-time donation online.
