Farm Credit Canada (FCC) renewed its commitment to the health and safety of Western Canadians by making a $600,000 contribution over four years to STARS air ambulance.
“Each year STARS flies thousands of missions in and around the same rural communities served by FCC. We have seen the positive impact STARS has had during some very difficult times,” said FCC Chief Marketing Officer, Todd Klink.
“FCC is proud to continue to support STARS as it plans for the future and a need that will always be there.”
FCC’s donation will support the operation of STARS’ bases in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba as well as STARS’ mobile education program, which provides donor-supported critical care education at no cost to rural health professionals.
“FCC has made a substantial investment in the health and safety of its employees, customers, and their communities across Western Canada,” said Andrea Robertson, president and chief executive officer of STARS.
“This generous gift will help save many lives and will impact countless others. But it will also fuel innovation, enabling us to continue providing world-class emergency air medical care and transport to those who need it most.”
STARS is a charitable, non-profit helicopter air ambulance service and has flown more than 40,000 missions across Western Canada since 1985.
