The Sunchild First Nation will be getting some new technology from Shell Canada after they announced that they will be donating $1 million worth of technology to organizations in need across Canada as part of Giving Tuesday.
According to a release, Shell and the Canadian Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) will distribute more than 300 recent model computers, laptops and monitors to 12 organizations. This is the ERA's single largest donation to date and marks a milestone for the organization. The remainder of the donation will be given out to schools and other organizations over the coming months.
"A lack of access to computers and the Internet can limit opportunities for those already in vulnerable situations," said Michael Crothers, President and Country Chair, Shell Canada in a release. "We are delighted to be celebrating Giving Tuesday – a global day of giving – by making a local contribution; providing $1 million in surplus computers to deserving organizations across Canada, particularly to schools in Indigenous communities."
The largest number of recipients from today's computer distribution are Indigenous organizations and schools in Alberta. This supports Shell's commitment to work in collaboration with Indigenous communities in the areas of community engagement, business development, community investment and employment.
