Manitoba Farm Family Donates To STARS

A farm family in the Portage la Prairie area has donated $22,351 to STARS Air Ambulance.
The Verwey family, which operates Verwey Farms, planted 40 acres of soybeans with the intention of donating the net profits to STARS.
They well exceeded their initial goal of $16,000
“Living, working and taking part in recreational activities in rural Manitoba comes with the inherent risks of possible accidents in areas that are not easily accessed by emergency services,” said Jill Verwey. “STARS in Manitoba has become an invaluable asset to our communities, providing emergency medical services and transportation to larger centres like Winnipeg.”
Other partners in the project included Legend Seeds, Shur-Gro/Munro Farm Supplies, Syngenta Canada, Pro Image Signs and Richardson Pioneer.
