Students at St. Peter School will be paid a special visit by The Calgary Flames’ mascot, Harvey the Hound on June 17. The Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) has donated 20 refurbished laptops which will be presented to deserving students at St. Peter School on Wednesday morning.

“We are really excited to have Harvey present this donation,” says Bojan Paduh, founder and president of ERA. “We often make donations to students, but to kick off the summer we wanted to do something extra special and so decided to surprise the kids by inviting Harvey the Hound to their school to present the donation.”

Bruce Campbell, principal of St. Peter School said “We are blessed to be fortunate enough to receive these laptops for students to utilize at home and enhance their learning.” St. Peter School will determine which 20 students between the ages of 5 and 11 the laptops will be given to.

Media representatives are invited to attend and cover this donation story as ERA and Harvey the Hound present 20 students of St. Peter School with their very own laptops.
