With the increased online requirements during the covid-19 pandemic, Sunrise Healing Lodge was struggling to meet the technological needs of its staff and clients. So they reached out to the Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) for assistance and we were happy to help with 4 desktop computers! This donation will be used by their in-house support team to help their clients continue to engage in recovery programs online.
Sunrise Healing Lodge is an Indigenous agency that is open to people from all walks of life that are seeking a solution to the problem of addiction. They offer a solution to those suffering in the grips of a chronic, progressive and fatal illness by teaching them how to recreate their lives.
In Calgary, Sunrise is the only addictions treatment centre where Indigenous culture and spirituality are used harmoniously with the 12 Steps pioneered by Alcoholics Anonymous for the treatment of addiction.
They offer a variety of services for clients which includes:

The Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) 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 an electronic pickup service, 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. You can get involved by simply disposing of your unwanted electronics with the ERA. Make a drop off at one of our 7 depots Canada wide or contact us to see if you qualify for a free pickup!
