Maritime Energy supports LifeFlight with gas, diesel sales

Mar 29, 2021

Maritime Energy and Maritime Farms stores are supporting LifeFlight through gasoline and diesel sales at 13 of their convenience stores. This program, titled “Pennies for Life,” donates one cent for every gallon of gasoline and diesel fuel sold during April and May.

“LifeFlight receives a request for transport about every four hours, every day of the week. It has probably helped save the life of someone you know as it has provided critical care and transport for over 30,000 patients throughout Maine” says President of Maritime Energy Susan Ware Page.

“Our state needs this essential service, and we want to do what we can to help the organization.”

Pennies for Life will help LifeFlight purchase a new helicopter, which will complete an entire fleet upgrade. These new aircrafts are faster, have a larger interior workspace and advanced avionics that give LifeFlight more options to safely and reliably answer more calls for help.
