ERA Partners with Golden Hill School to Donate 30 Computers to Calgary Bridge Foundation for Youth

By electronic recycling association January 30, 2024

The Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) and Golden Hill School in Strathmore, AB, have joined forces to make a meaningful impact on the lives of immigrant and refugee families. The result? A donation of 30 desktop computers to the Calgary Bridge Foundation for Youth (CBFY).

The ERA received computer towers from Golden Hill School for donation. ERA, known for its commitment to electronic recycling and community support, promptly collected the computer towers, ensured data wiping, and equipped them with monitors, mice, and keyboards. This transformation turned them into complete desktop setups ready for donation.

The Calgary Bridge Foundation for Youth (CBFY) has been a pillar of support for immigrant and refugee communities since its inception in 1990. With an annual reach of over 12,596 individuals, CBFY operates as a charitable, not-for-profit organization, focusing on youth and family welfare.

For three decades, CBFY has fostered a welcoming and inclusive environment for immigrant and refugee children, youth, and their families. Their mission revolves around providing essential skills, information, knowledge, and experiences to empower newcomers as they build their lives in Canada.

The ERA and Golden Hill School donation has now become a crucial link in supporting CBFY’s various youth programs and aiding new immigrant families with limited income in gaining access to technology. The 30 desktop computers donated by ERA, thanks to the contribution from Golden Hill School, are set to make a significant difference in the lives of these families.

ERA is grateful for Golden Hill School’s proactive role in connecting with us and facilitating this generous donation. This collaboration exemplifies the power of community engagement and highlights the positive impact that thoughtful contributions can have on the lives of those in need.
