Sturgeon County reaches historic municipal milestone, contributing more than $500,000 to STARS

“James Richardson & Sons, Limited and its affiliated companies have been tremendous supporters of STARS. Having a partner like the JR Group of Companies, who make Manitoba its home, continuing to support STARS in this massive way is very meaningful,” said STARS president and CEO Andrea Robertson.

“This partnership has a direct impact on the lives of western Canadians and is an investment in the well-being of local communities. This generous donation helps to ensure that STARS can continue to deliver critical care, anywhere. We were built by the community, for the community, we are so thankful to have this significant partnership enabling us to always be ready for the patients in need.”
