Steinhafels Furniture recently donated furniture to furnish Flight for Life’s new Kenosha Ground Base at 5500 46th St.
Flight for Life, known for providing air medical transportation, has started a new advanced life support and critical care ground service in the Kenosha, Racine and Waukesha areas.
When Steinhafels learned of the new service, the business reached out and offered to assist by providing some of the furniture needs.
“Steinhafels is committed to helping our local first responders,” said Brad Karmann, sales manager for Steinhafels’ Kenosha store. “When we learned about the new Flight For Life Ground Base, we saw this furniture donation as a small way to help these heroes feel more at home while they are away from their families — working to serve patients within the community.”
“Each year Steinhafels partners with dozens of local non-profit organizations on various projects across southeastern Wisconsin,” said Dan States, general manager for Steinhafels’ Kenosha store. “The Kenosha community has been very good to us, and we want to give back in any way we can.”
“We were thrilled when Steinhafels contacted us offering to donate some of the furniture we needed. It really helps in reducing the cost of setting up our new base in the community,” said Rebecca Schwuchow, Flight For Life South Region manager.
Flight For Life is headquartered in Waukesha and has two air bases, one in Waukesha and the other in McHenry, Ill. There are three ALS/Critical Care ground ambulance bases, one each in Waukesha, Richfield and Kenosha.
