Enerplus Corporation, who have been strong supporters of STARS since 1992, have reached the $500,000 giving milestone. A celebration, which included a logo unveiling on the STARS helicopter, was held on April 25 for the independent oil and gas producer at the STARS Calgary hanger.
â€œEnerplus has been in business for over 25 years, and our ongoing commitment to health and safety has always been a priority for us. We believe itâ€™s critical to our continued success. Weâ€™re proud of our continued commitment to STARS, and the vital emergency medical care and transportation service they provide to the communities and surrounding areas in which we operate,â€ said Gord Love, Senior Manager, Canadian Operations, Enerplus.
In August 2011, Enerplus renewed their commitment as a founding donor with a $300,000 donation dedicated to the education and training programs for STARS in Saskatchewan. The gift, which put Enerplusâ€™ cumulative giving total to $532, 010, helped STARS in providing awareness and education to emergency and medical professionals in the province.
â€œEnerplus has supported STARS for over 20 years now,â€ said STARS President and CEO Andrea Robertson. â€œWe are delighted with all their contributions over the years and this celebration was a great way to honour their dedication to safety in the community.â€
