Viterra Inc. (“Viterra”) is pleased to announce that it is teaming up with STARS to sponsor its 2021 fundraising calendar. This marks the sixth consecutive year that Viterra has partnered with STARS by covering the full printing costs of the calendar.
This initiative is STARS’ second largest fundraiser, with more than 60,000 calendars sold annually. The calendars will be available for purchase at Viterra facilities across Western Canada.
“We’re very pleased to be continuing our sponsorship with STARS, which has had a tremendous impact in the lives of patients in rural communities, including our employees, our customers and their families,” said Kyle Jeworski, President and CEO for Viterra North America. “We’ve worked closely with this world class organization since 2015, and are proud to help patients share their stories and support STARS in raising awareness so that they can continue their life-saving work.”
The campaign is entering its 28th year and has raised millions of dollars to date.
“STARS is grateful for Viterra’s generous support, especially during these difficult times, when many of our fundraising events have been postponed or cancelled,” said Andrea Robertson, President and CEO of STARS. “We are grateful for Viterra’s ongoing partnership to continue our calendar program, helping STARS stay operational and providing world-class, life-saving emergency medical care to patients who need it most.”
The calendars will be available until December 4 at most Viterra locations, as well as online at starscalendar.ca. Those interested in purchasing a calendar, or making a donation to STARS, can contact their local Viterra facility for more information.
