Shell Canada and ERA Donates 10 Laptops to the SAIT Chinook Lodge

By electronic recycling association January 16, 2023

Shell Canada is a long-standing client of the Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) and a huge contributor to our donations program. Without organizations like these who make a concerted effort to be involved in their community, ERA would not be able to help as many organizations every year as we do. We were proud to partner on the donation of 10 laptops to the SAIT Chinook Lodge in Calgary. 

“We received 10 laptops donation today and we are so grateful, these laptops will make such a huge impact on the students.” Tapaarjuk (Tap) Moore- Indigenous Student Advisor (SAIT)- Chinook Lodge Learner Academic Services
