Help Us Help Your Community
Community Sponsorship Program Opportunities
We are always looking for community-minded people and local business heroes who would love to support Defenders For Hope by helping us care for our community.
We support those in need with our Defenders Packs, Sheild Packs, Start-up Packs, Dignity Packs, Personal Packs, help with food and financial aid, counseling, workshops, showers, washing, transport, helping to find accommodation, and just being here to offer support and a listening ear over a cup of coffee.
All donations are tax-deductible and you will be advertised on our social media and through our networks as a sponsor (if you wish) … and the best part … you will be helping those in most need, in our community.
