Alberta’s Minister of Health Tyler Shandro Gets involved with ERA Bringing Humanity into Electronics
Society for Treatment of Autism in Calgary will Receive a Donation to help their Mission
Calgary, AB (September 11th 2019) – The Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) is excited to announce that they will be holding a donation event with the help of Alberta’s Minister of Health Tyler Shandro who will be making an appearance. The Society for Treatment of Autism will receive a donation of 10 desktops and 1 projector. This donation will be used by their clients and staff. Due to oil and gas prices, government funding has been frozen for several years and donations have decreased rapidly. These donations will replace outdated and broken devices that have become useless.
Speaking with the Society for Treatment of Autism’s, Executive Director & Registered Psychologist, Kimberley Ward, Ph.D. States, “Society for Treatment of Autism is honoured to be receiving this donation from the Electronic Recycling Association. The computers will increase the efficiency of staff and allow them to dedicate more time to the children, youth, adults, and families we serve. STA is committed to providing quality programs. This donation will certainly help us achieve our goal of enhancing lives across the autism spectrum.”
“This donation is a perfect example of the community spirit that makes Calgary a great city to live in for everyone,” said Tyler Shandro, Minister of Health and MLA for Calgary-Acadia. “Donors enhance the services provided across our publicly funded health system, and this will be a big boost for the services of the Society for Treatment of Autism to clients and families. It’s a practical way for one great Calgary agency to support another, and I’m honoured to recognize them and support them.”
The Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) is a non-profit organization founded in 2004 to address the growing problem of e-waste and the increasing ‘digital divide’. For over fifteen years, ERA has offered simple solutions to help individuals and organizations prevent operational equipment from premature destruction.
