Help Replace Stolen Classroom Camera Gear

At the end of last year the Digital Arts Program at Medicine Hat High School had just under $5000 of equipment go missing. This equipment included our two newest DSLR cameras and 3 lenses. This equipment serves around 100 students including our classroom students and our Photography and Videography Club members. A few other reasons this gear is important is:

- Students use this equipment to compete in our regional skills competition at Medicine Hat College. Often times students will attend provincials too.
- Our graduating students who are pursuing post secondary with a focus on digital arts use this equipment to become prepared for the next level of studies.
- Our students use this equipment for fundraising / school community events such as Fall Family Photos
- We are going to be spearheading a new project this year where students from grade 10-12 will be running in school businesses focused on film and photography which this equipment would be extremely valuable for 

Our camera security has improved as a result of this loss but we still are without this quality gear. We could benefit greatly from community support. It will take some time before all of this equipment is replaced otherwise.

We would be thrilled to receive cash donations but would also very much appreciate equipment donations if a person is not making use of the gear currently.

If you donate, you are replacing:

Lens EOS 5D Mk II Kit Lens EF 24-105 Zoom Lens for EOS 5D

Camera EOS 60D        

No longer available – replaced by 80D

Lens Kit lens 1 for EOS 60D EFS 17-85 mm f/4-5.6 IS USM

Canon EOS M50 Mirrorless Digital Camera

Lens EF-M 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM

Any help is much appreciated.
