Peak of the Market has contributed $30,000 to STARS air ambulance—which serves Manitoba newborns and their families—for the purchase of a specialized incubator mount will allow STARS’ new Airbus H145 helicopters to safely transport neonatal patients who require an incubator, ensuring the new helicopter can be fully integrated with the Child Health Transport teams in Manitoba.
“Peak of the Market believes in giving back to our community. Whether it is through our year-round food produce donations or important financial contributions like this one, Peak of the Market Growers value commitment to community and family.” said Peter Loewen, chair of the board of directors, Peak of the Market. “When families need immediate care, STARS provides it – no matter the location. Being in a rural location can sometimes prove to be challenging but Growers recognize and appreciate the fact that STARS will be there when the need and circumstances arise.”
