Closer to Home Receives Laptop Donation

By electronic recycling association February 2, 2023

The Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) is thankful for the support of our generous donors that allow us to continue providing free computers to charitable organizations and individuals in need. Shell Canada helped us provide 4 laptops to Closer to Home Community Services in Calgary which will be used to help low-income families.

Closer to Home Community Services (CTH) is a charitable organization located in Calgary, AB since 1995. CTH provides wide range of services designed to meet the unique needs of children, youth and families.

Closer to Home Community Services facilitates growth and belonging in communities of meaningful relationships. Our integrity is grounded in evidence-based practice authentically informed by, and connected to, diverse cultural wisdom. We journey with children and families to uncover strength, hope and healing, creating new possibilities for a brighter future.

Through the use of evidence-based practices and innovative solutions, Closer to Home strives to preserve, reunify and build stronger families who can care for their children and contribute meaningfully in their community.

Their family-centred, strength-based services ensure that children have stable, healthy and safe living environments in which to grow and develop. And in some cases, when families are separated, we provide a place for children and youth to call home while offering therapeutic support with the ultimate goal of family reunification.  To learn more about Closer to Home please visit their website.

The ERA works with charities across the country to provide refurbished electronics for their programs. This gives them access to reliable technology while allowing them to apply their resources to what they’re good at: developing programs to help Canadians struggling with poverty, health concerns or are otherwise experiencing misfortune. Because the Electronic Recycling Association is an advocate of equality, we are not specifically affiliated with a given charity. The ERA helps hundreds of charitable organizations each year through the donation of necessary computer equipment. Organizations qualified for donations through ERA’s donation program include: registered charities, non-profit organizations, care facilities (seniors homes, hospitals, daycares, etc.) and educational institutions.
