The Electronic Recycling Association continues to donate computers & laptops during difficult economic times.

    EDMONTON, May 1 /CNW/ - During these difficult economic times, the ERA
continues to work hard and maintain a positive attitude in the hope that they
will receive further support from businesses, schools, government departments
& individuals. While there has been a marked decrease in donations this year,
there has been a marked increase in charity donation requests for computers
which has far exceeded any previous year. Despite this fact, the ERA has
persevered and ensured that there have been hundreds of computers & laptops
donated to charities across Canada, with many more to come.
    This month the ERA is highlighting donations to Family Services of
Central Alberta, Alberta Northern Lights Wheelchair Basketball & the Bissell
Centre. These organizations are in great need of laptops, computers & LCD
screens to upgrade current technology and help underprivileged youth in the
community gain access to technology.
    The ERA is announcing a fantastic opportunity for businesses and
residents of Edmonton to drop off their computer and electronic equipment at
the ERA Warehouse located at 11404 143 Street, as well as offering pick-up
services for larger scale donations. The ERA is also looking for partners to
host further Community Donation Round-Up events in the near future, please
contact the ERA if you have the space and time for this type of event.

    ANLWBS was founded in 1976 as a registered charitable organization, in
the early years the ANLWBS existed solely for the purpose of developing the
sport of wheelchair basketball - for the direct benefit members received from
participation. The past three decades have seen significant change and
progress, where the ANLWBS has evolved to offer a comprehensive range of
programs and services. Participation benefits from involvement with the ANLWBS
are an outcome of the influence the organization has on the development of the
whole person, their social, emotional, and physical well-being.
