THE LIFESAVERS FOUNDATION
Lifesavers Foundation 2019 Northern Region Summer Business Appeal
As a business, you strive for growth and increased profitability. Surf lifesavers, on the other hand, are facing unprecedented demand for frontline services, while funding requirements continue to grow.
Population growth, coastal residential developments, burgeoning tourism, and New Zealanders’ attachment to beaches are all factors in the increased pressure upon volunteers, their equipment, and their resources. More equipment and longer hours require the additional support of socially responsible businesses and donors to help provide vital lifesaving services.
Now is the time for your business to donate to the Lifesavers Foundation 2019 Northern Region Summer Business Appeal, and look after those who are looking after us.
