CANADA, April 1, 2020 /CNW/ - The Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) announced a new program that will help equip families and organizations with the gift of technology throughout COVID-19. A lot of companies are stepping up with new and unique ideas throughout COVID-19, it is no shock that the ERA too has created a program to help those in need through these tough times.
Within the last two weeks, the ERA has seen a massive increase in online donation requests, primarily coming from families who, before COVID-19, did not own a laptop or a computer and would utilize their local libraries to gain online access for school work and other digital necessity.
With the new generated demand created by COVID-19, ERA has introduced a new program called "Lending a Lifeline by Lending a Laptop". This program is built to help families and organizations that are in need of devices at home. Throughout the last couple of days, ERA has seen their list of requests go from tens to hundreds in such a short period of time.
