ERA Donates 10 iPhones to Toronto People with Aids Foundation

The Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) is proud to provide the Toronto People with AIDS Foundation a second donation of 10 iPhones which will be donated to the foundation’s clients that are in need of the devices.

“You were good to our organisation last year by giving us cell phones for our members. The need is increasing and several of our members need phones.” Ian McKnight Director, Programs and Services PWA (Toronto People With AIDS Foundation)

The Toronto People with AIDS Foundation engage people living with HIV/AIDS by enhancing their health and well-being through practical and therapeutic support services and broader social change, and they inspire them to live into their dreams and discoveries.  They live in affirming, sustaining communities where they find inspiration and support for their dreams, health, well-being and meaningful contributions.  People living with HIV/AIDS play a crucial role in the governance and operation of the Toronto People with AIDS Foundation, but, most important, are its heart and soul. Although the Foundation seeks supportive partnerships in fulfilling their mission, their response to HIV/AIDS is, more than anything else, inspired by the voices and experience of people living with HIV/AIDS.

At the Electronic Recycling Association, we strive to help foster a community of innovation and connectivity. As a non-profit ourselves, we see first-hand what supporting the communities we operate in does for those living there. Providing electronic devices allows these charitable organizations to continue in their mission of bringing people together in a creative space.

Reusing electronics to create a new community program reduces how much e-waste ends up in our landfills. If you’re not using a printer, laptop, or projector, many organizations that operate locally in your town or city could greatly benefit from it. Donating a laptop to the ERA means another organization will be able to utilize it to start a new program, on-board more administrative staff/volunteers, or teach youth and seniors a new digital program. As our society continues to advance in technology faster than ever, the demand for updated electronics to support these community initiatives increases as well.
