Vancouver, BC — February 13, 2015 — The Electronic Recycling Association (ERA), along with Vancouver MLA David Eby, will be presenting Kitsilano Neighbourhood House (KNH) with a donation of five laptops.

“We are grateful to have David Eby’s support and active participation in our donation program,” says Bojan Paduh, founder and president of the ERA. “It is great to see the community rally around a local charity like KNH.”

KNH has a range of programs tailored to suit the unique needs of families, seniors, youth and preteens, communities and children. This donation will ensure funding is used to support program development rather than to purchase equipment.

“I’m so glad to see the efforts of two strong, community building non-profits working together to improve lives for people in our neighbourhoods,” says David Eby, “both Kits House and the Electronics Recycling Association make a difference for so many people – congratulations to both of them for partnering to introduce a vital service for seniors, families and vulnerable people in Kitsilano.”

The ERA and David Eby will deliver the laptops to KNH at 3:00pm on Friday, February 13.
