The Lower Mainland Purpose Society for Youth and Families, Dress for Success Vancouver, Big Brothers of Greater Vancouver and Delta Stroke Recovery Society will receive refurbished electronics to help with their mission to train, assist, and develop the communities they serve.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
New Westminster, BC – May 18, 2022
The Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) is excited to announce that they will be co-hosting a donation event with the New Westminster Police to provide 35 electronic devices to the clients of the Lower Mainland Purpose Society for Youth and Families, Dress for Success Vancouver, Big Brothers of Greater Vancouver and the Delta Stroke Recovery Society.
Viewing regular access to a personal computer as a non-essential luxury is a thing of the past. Even basic activities now require the use of a computer; applying for a job, completing school work, staying in touch with family or even something as simple as looing up a bus route is difficult without a computer.
The ERA has developed a charitable computer donation program to address exactly that problem. We are happy to partner with the New Westminster Police to provide some organizations of the Lower Mainland that work to train, assist, and develop the communities we serve by providing for their IT needs.
Date: Thursday May 19th, 2022
Venue: New Westminster Police Department: 555 Columbia St, New Westminster, BC V3L 1B2
*Media is Invited to Attend
