Devices4U2020 Partners with ERA to Donate Laptops & iPads to Killarney Junior High

The Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) would not be able to help charities, non-profits, and schools with free electronics if not for the support of our generous donors. A like-minded organization called Devices4U2020 in Chicago, IL, wanted to get involved and help the ERA fill one of our many donation requests. The ERA and Devices4U2020 were happy to donate 4 laptops and 2 iPads to the Killarney Junior High in Edmonton, AB.

“Lots of our students are new to Canada, are low-income, and/or are facing many challenges at home and school. Our school currently has only 4 iPads for just under 400 students,” said Emily Howell teacher at the Killarney School.

Two Quest Academy alumni had a shared dream to make digital devices accessible to more students and started Devices4U2020, to collect technology to help others. ERA thanks these motivated individuals from Devices4U2020 for assisting us with donating 8 laptops to the Lakeview Elementary School in Quesnel, BC! These laptops will be shared among the students allowing them access to the amazing world of technology in the classroom and building their skills for the future of technology.

The Electronic Recycling Association is a non-profit organization that has been reducing unnecessary electronic waste since 2004. We reduce adverse environmental contribution through electronic recycling, repurposing, and through the donation of electronics and other IT Equipment. With a number of drop off locations around Canada based primarily out of Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver, Saskatoon, Toronto, Montreal, and Winnipeg, and electronic pickup services, the ERA provides a meaningful way for organizations and individuals to deal with their old computer equipment in a safe and secure manner that matches or exceeds government standards.

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.
