It was revealed yesterday that the Fort McMurray wildfire that occurred back in May caused over $3.6 billion in damages. Many charities from all over the world have donated funds to those in need of assistance, but there are still many facilities that are lacking the fundamental resources to function effectively, including schools. Samsung Canada is the latest company to offer its support as it has today donated $100,000 to the Canadian Red Cross and has provided 200 Galaxy View tablets to Fort McMurray Public Schools as an educational tool, which have a combined value of $140,000.

“The teamwork, strength and spirit demonstrated by Fort McMurray residents since tragedy struck in May continues to be an inspiration for our entire team,” writes Chief Brand Officer of Samsung Electronics Canada Mark Childs. As the focus turns to rebuilding this vibrant community, we are proud to contribute to the Canadian Red Cross relief efforts, and look forward to working alongside the Fort McMurray Public School District Board to help residents get back on their feet as soon as possible and support students to reach their full potential.”

For those unaware of the Galaxy View, it’s an 18.4-inch Android tablet that was designed to compete with the likes of the iPad Pro and Surface Book. It sports a 1.6GHz octa-core Exynos 750 chipset, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable storage and a 5,700mAh battery, which we found was more than capable of withstanding up to 9-hours of heavy usage; making it the perfect companion for every student. The out-of-the-box support for all of Google’s core services, such as Google Drive and Google Docs, also means that students will be able to access and edit all of their documents both in the classroom and at home.
