Edmonton, AB (October 24, 2014) – PCL Construction is pleased to announce a donation of $90,000 over the next three years to Canada’s Prairie provinces emergency air-ambulance service, STARS. The donation will be offered in three annual gifts of $30,000.

“We are construction partners who build success through supporting our communities,” said Paul Douglas, PCL president and CEO. “Like STARS, we are committed to safety and to pushing ourselves to consistently deliver outstanding results. With the Building magic in the Air partnership, PCL is proud to share the STARS vision of partnership, innovation, and leadership.”
The Building Magic in the Air partnership between the construction industry and STARS was formed with a shared mission of education, safety, and saving lives. The construction industry’s support of STARS is important because of the role STARS plays in helping industry workers and other residents of Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba should they require emergency medical transport.
“At STARS, it’s all about helping that next patient that needs us. Donations like the one from PCL Construction allow us to accomplish this,” said Gurpreet Lail, executive director of the STARS Foundation. “STARS and PCL Construction have a shared commitment to safety in our community, and we are grateful for their support.”
PCL’s gift will be acknowledged at the Building Magic in the Air Gala at the Chateau Lacombe Hotel in Edmonton on Saturday, October 25. To learn more about STARS, go to www.STARS.ca.
