Did you know that Richmond is home to over 350 registered charities, all of which rely on volunteer support? The Electronic Recycling Association works 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. The ERA was happy to donate a printer and projector to Richmond Cares, Richmond Gives Society to help them expand their community services to seniors.
Because the ERA 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. You can apply here.
We strive to meet reasonable requests for IT and related equipment, such as computers, laptops, projection equipment, printers, phones and related peripherals. Our goal is to fulfill every single reasonable request for a computer donation that we receive, and we are thrilled to announce that we are getting close to achieving this goal. Since 2004, we have donated thousands of computers to Canadians in need and this number grows daily. If your business wants to get involved and help us meet the demand for donations, book a pickup here and we will work to refurbish your devices and place them in the hands of those who need them most!
Richmond Cares, Richmond Gives (RCRG) is a registered charity based in – you guessed it! – Richmond, BC. They’ve been part of the community for over 40 years, though their name is still new; they only began using it in 2015.
Their core mission is to encourage and facilitate local philanthropy – both volunteerism and monetary donations. They work every day to ensure that Richmond’s charitable sector has the resources it needs to make a meaningful impact in the community.
In addition to being a hub for volunteering and giving, they’re a direct service provider, operating a Child Care Resource & Referral Centre, the Richmond Christmas Fund, and a wide range of Seniors Community Support Services, among other programs.
Richmond is a healthy, vibrant, engaged, connected community. It’s inclusive, diverse, welcoming, and pretty darn beautiful. RCRG is proud to call it home and excited to make it an even better place to live, work, and play. Visit their website to learn how you can help.
