The Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) is excited to announce that along with the support of MLA Ryan Meili, we recently donated 10 computers to the International Women of Saskatoon. This donation will provide their low-income, high-needs clients with access to computers so that they may participate in programs and services that are offered online.
IWS’ programs and services are free of charge to its members and other women, men, and children from the immigrant/refugee community. The ERA was happy to provide free technology to assist their vision in the empowerment and integration of newcomer, immigrant and refugee women and their families to reach their full potential as contributing members of Canadian society.
“I am very pleased to attend ERA’s donation event in support of International Women of Saskatoon. IWS does incredible work in our city for immigrant and refugee women and I am glad to see that the ERA is supporting such an important organization in Saskatoon. Thank you to the ERA for organizing this event and for donating to such an outstanding cause.” – Ryan Meili, MLA Saskatoon Meewasin and Leader of the Official Opposition
