In today’s digital age, access to technology is more crucial than ever. As we continue to navigate the challenges posed by the ever-evolving technology landscape, remote working and virtual engagements have become the norm. However, not everyone has equal access to the tools and resources needed to participate in this digital world. Recognizing this disparity, ERA (Electronic Recycling Association) has stepped up to make a significant contribution. In a heartwarming gesture, ERA recently donated two laptops to the Southern Alberta Brain Injury Society (SABIS), enabling support staff and clients to bridge the digital divide and stay connected in a remote world.

SABIS, short for the Southern Alberta Brain Injury Society, is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for individuals affected by acquired brain injuries. Their mission is to provide support, education, and advocacy for those living with brain injuries and their families. They offer a wide range of services, including rehabilitation programs, community outreach, and support groups.

SABIS has been a beacon of hope for many individuals and families dealing with the profound challenges that come with brain injuries. However, like many non-profits, they have faced their share of obstacles. The shift to remote work and virtual engagements presented unique challenges for their staff and clients, many of whom did not have access to essential technology.

ERA, the Electronic Recycling Association, is a Canadian non-profit organization dedicated to reducing electronic waste through recycling and refurbishing electronic devices. More than just a recycling initiative, ERA has a strong commitment to digital inclusion and giving back to the community. They believe that access to technology is a fundamental right and an essential tool for education, employment, and social inclusion.

ERA achieves its mission through the donation of refurbished laptops, computers, and other electronic devices to non-profits, schools, and individuals in need. Their recent donation to SABIS is just one example of the positive impact they have on communities across Canada. Click HERE for more information on how you can get involved.
