Today was a great day at the Electronic Recycling Association! Several of our staff members put together a package filled with gifts and delivered it to a Calgary family in need as part of our inaugural "ERA's Adopt-a-Family" program. Giving back is important to us, so helping a family in need during the holiday season seemed like a perfect way to round out the year.
The family, who rely on a single income to support three young children and an aging family member with health concerns requiring full-time care, was very grateful for the help. The family's mother noted that "this year we are struggling more so because some of our support has been cut and need to put what we have towards necessities. Words cannot describe how happy and grateful we would be to be accepted in your program this year, it would be the best gift of all."
The ERA put together a package for the family, including several fun gifts and books for each child, gift cards to cover the cost of a great holiday feast and a date night out for the parents, as well as a refurbished laptop.
We are grateful to be able to help members of our community, and look forward to hearing about all of the other wonderful things happening this holiday season.
How do you or your company give back throughout the holidays? Let us know, we would love to hear about it!
Wishing you and yours a happy, healthy holiday season!
