Supporting UkraineMarch 15, 2022
Starling is proud to support Ukraine during this extremely challenging time. Thank you to Dr. Maria Briggs (OB/GYN) who serves as the head of PLAST Ukrainian Scouting Organization in Hartford. She coordinated an effort on behalf of Starling to compile supplies for medical kits to go to Ukraine. Supplies included surgical dressings, butterfly closures, bandages, gauze pads, and antibiotic ointments.
