Front and center in that photo is Dave Nichols, a West Seattleite who has just been honored with The President’s Volunteer Service Award. He was photographed with colleagues from ShelterBox USA – the work for which he was honored. ShelterBox is an international disaster-relief organization that helps in the aftermath of disasters both natural and human-caused, delivering green boxes with “emergency tented shelter and other lifesaving supplies,” as the organization describes it. Dave works to raise awareness and money, which helped ShelterBox assist people caught up in more than 30 disasters in 23 countries last year alone – “providing families with disaster-relief tents, cook stoves, water purification units, blankets, mosquito nets, children’s packs, and other essential equipment.” P.S. You can assist ShelterBox’s mission through online donations at shelterboxusa.org.
