“Growing up as an immigrant in Canada a donated laptop or computer went a long way and was very important for day to day tasks like school work, surfing the web and socializing with friends and family from home.” Said Bojan Paduh, Founder and President of the Electronic Recycling Association. “I realize that there are obviously a lot more organizations and individuals like myself who are in need of a donation. We are excited to be a part of bridging the digital divide within the province of Quebec and look forward to the year ahead”.
