Electronic Recycling Association introduced a new program called "Lending a Lifeline by Lending a Laptop" and has received many donation requests from charities and individuals, and needs your help to fill them all
TORONTO, June 22, 2020 /CNW/ - The Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) announced a new program that will help equip families and organizations with the gift of technology throughout COVID-19. It has received 100's of requests from charities, non profits, and 1000's from individuals.
ERA is unable to fill all the incoming donation requests and needs help of corporations and individuals which had at least 1 laptop, computer or mobile devices to donate.
The Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) is seeking the help of the public. Due to the economic downturn, they are finding it extremely difficult to obtain enough donations from individuals to fulfill every charitable organizations wish.
Currently, the ERA has a growing list of over 200 pending organizations, and individuals that are looking for devices. These devices range from laptops, servers, switches, projectors and other sorts of IT equipment. These items are needed to improve the lives of others, act as an anchor so that organizations can progress and make a real difference within the community.
This is ERA's highest number of organizations ever to wait on a total of 2600 laptops and 1254 computers. They are urging for your help and for you to be involved in changing an individual's life for the better. "Over the years we have seen a notable increase in the need for technology through the staggering numbers portrayed on our waiting list each year." Said Bojan Paduh, Founder and President of the Electronic Recycling Association. "If we all give a little, these donations would be filled in no time. I am looking for your help in making these organizations dreams a reality."
ERA will pick up your obsolete devices for free in order to fulfill all of these donation requests. They supply data security services for individuals and companies across Canada ensuring that your data is taken care of and securely erased.
If you can help, please call ERA at 1.877.9EWASTE or email [email protected] for more information.
