ERA Donates Electronics to Saskatoon Family YMCA

By electronic recycling association January 13, 2022

The Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) is proud to announce the donation of 2 laptops and 2 printers to the Saskatoon Family YMCA. The devices will be used to assist in staff training and to implement their community-based programs.

The Saskatoon Family YMCA is a nonprofit, charitable organization that is actively involved in our community. They offer opportunities for health, personal growth and community service to over 6000 individuals through membership and program participation. Services range from on-site and in-school childcare to summer day camps to health, fitness and recreation programs.

The Saskatoon Family YMCA promotes quality healthy experiences for children, teens and adults. Healthy living is a state of physical, mental and social well-being and we promote active and outdoor playtime every day in all their children’s programs.  People feel happier and less isolated when engaged in activities they enjoy and when given opportunities to connect with others  To learn more about the Saskatoon Family YMCA please visit their website.

Viewing regular access to a personal computer as a non-essential luxury is a thing of the past. Even basic activities now require the use of a computer; applying for a job, completing school work, staying in touch with family or even something as simple as looking up a bus route is difficult without a computer. The Electronic Recycling Association has developed a charitable computer donation program to address exactly that problem.

We work 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.
