Laptop Donated to Parkland Head Injury Association

The Electronic Recycling Association was pleased to donate a laptop to Parkland Head Injury Association. They serve adults in Parkland County areas with brain injuries and other disabilities and reached out to the ERA because their computer is very old and they needed to replace it with a more efficient one.

The ERA is a non-profit organization committed to reducing unnecessary electronic waste by recycling and repurposing used electronics. We work with local companies to repurpose used electronics and IT equipment in a safe and secure manner. Our team works with community charities to provide repurpose computers and electronics to those in need. Contribute to our mission of reducing e-waste by recycling your unwanted electronic devices with the ERA.

Parkland Head Injury Association (PHIA) was founded in 1996 by a group of families who had experienced difficulties finding resources and services for their family members in the community.

As a response, they formed PHIA to enable persons with acquired brain injuries and their families to realize their potential and improve their quality of life by providing programs and services that meet their needs and enhance their quality of life. They wanted to create a safe place in their community for people affected by mental illness, brain injury, and physical disabilities with opportunities to socialize, to learn, to develop themselves in a collaborative, welcoming and fun environment.

Learn how to paint, bake bread, and make gingerbread houses. Participate in fun and engaging activities such as bowling, playing an instrument, and dancing. They plan their activities around the interests and suggestions of the participants. Together, they try new things and do seasonal traditions. Together, they are building a community of friends!

The PHIA Board and programs are supported 100% by volunteers. Their funds come from a variety of sources. Support from other organizations like the Thrift Shops, Light Up Your Life, 100 Women Who Care, and Fundraising activities that their participants participate in and private donations. At present they are not receiving any government funding. Visit their website to learn more.
