The Electronic Recycling Association is pleased to partner on another donation with Thales Canada! This time we donated 10 laptops to Unity Health Toronto – St Michael’s.
Due to COVID 19, the FOCUS Team has had to limit their face-to-face interactions with clients. This has created much stress and challenges for their clients. In an effort to continue to support their clients to the best of their ability, they have turned to virtual communications. Unfortunately, many of their clients are unable to afford laptops due to financial difficulty. Clients having access to the team virtually will positively add to their mental health and wellbeing.
Wherever safety and security are critical, Thales delivers. Together they innovate with their customers to build smarter solutions, enabling them to make millions of important decisions every single day. The ERA thanks Thales for supporting organizations on our donation list to make a positive impact in the community. Visit their website here to learn more.
Unity Health Toronto, comprised of Providence Healthcare, St. Joseph’s Health Centre and St. Michael’s Hospital, works to advance the health of everyone in urban communities and beyond. Their health network serves patients, residents and clients across the full spectrum of care, spanning primary care, secondary community care, tertiary and quaternary care services to post-acute through rehabilitation, palliative care and long-term care, while investing in world-class research and education.
The Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) is a non-profit organization founded in 2004 to address the growing problem of e-waste and the increasing ‘digital divide’. For over fifteen years, ERA has offered simple solutions to help individuals and organizations prevent operational equipment from premature destruction. With a focus on recovery, refurbishment and reuse, ERA continuously supplies charitable groups with donated IT equipment while securely managing the retiring IT assets of organizations and individuals across Canada. We believe that reuse before recycling is critical in managing the waste created by computer hardware, and by offering industry-leading data destruction for all equipment we receive, we have securely repurposed hundreds of tons of equipment. Because not everything ERA receives can be reasonably repurposed, we have partnered with certified recycling organizations to process equipment that has reached the end of its productive life.
