Following the Typhoon in the Philippines, Rotarian Vanetta Wilson challenged the members of the Idaho Fall Rotary Club to "give the gift of shelter" and contributed to a fund raiser to ShelterBox for the area that suffered extreme damage.  Within a couple weeks of her pitch to fellow club members, Vanetta suffered heart failure and was lost at the young age of 50.  Her family named Rotary as a memorial with a request to Rotarians to see Vanetta's last fund raising effort through to completion. 
The Idaho Falls Rotary Club recently sent $7000 to ShelterBox USA to help families still struggling following the Typhoon.  Idaho Falls Rotary Club President Jackie Flowers says "Vanetta's charitable spirit was an inspiration to fellow Rotarians during her life.  That commitment to Service Above Self continues on in spirit as we complete the project she so passionately put before us.  Vanetta was committed to helping those who had suffered life changing circumstances.  She was an amazing woman and is sorely missed by her fellow Rotarians".  The club hopes to be able to learn more about the families served by this last charitable act.
