Ambulatory services are a lifeline to our customers, communities and employees in rural Saskatchewan. Every year, we participate in various fundraising efforts to support STARS’ operations. In this photo, Deb and Darren Blair are proud to present a donation of $20,925 as the proceeds from a fundraising live auction we held at our STARS Gala Event with our customers and staff.
Supporting community rinks, halls and hospitals in rural Saskatchewan is very important to Blair’s, and every year, we provide several donations to support these types of facilities in our communities. Barden McCullough (Blair’s McLean) presents a cheque to Chris Bailey, President of the McLean Recreation Association, that went towards the construction of a warm up building for the outdoor rink.
We annually support 4-H locally, regionally and provincially. Many of our Blair’s team are 4-H alumni themselves and believe the 4-H program provides so many learning and development opportunities for youth. We make donations to local 4-H Achievement Days, volunteer for 4-H events, purchase steers at 4-H regional events and participate in provincial fundraising efforts.
Supporting access to high quality health care in the communities we live and work in is very important to our owners and employees at Blair’s. Kyle Boyko and Lynn McDonald (Blair’s – Lanigan) present a cheque to the Lanigan Hospital for $3,600. This contribution is a Christmas donation from the owners and staff.
Blair’s was also please to provide a $25,000 donation to support the building of a personal care home in Rosthern. This personal care home will provide optimal care and accessible support to seniors.
