Electronics/Gaming Equipment/Toys

Donations of toys, books, crafts and other types of items to the Children’s Hospital is common, and these are referred to as ‘gifts-in-kind’. Gently-used DVD movies and computer games/video game console equipment are occasionally accepted as per need @ ​http://www.childrenshospital.ab.ca/site/PageNavigator/howtohelp/giftsofartandtoys

Check with local day care centers or woman’s shelters to see if they are in need of any donations you may have to offer.

Their mission is to collect as many socks as possible for the homeless and would love it if you could help @ http://www.odd-sox.org/about-us.html

E-Waste 

The Electronic Recycling Association’s key mandate is to reduce electronic waste. Most households and businesses have unwanted electronics taking up valuable storage space because they aren’t aware of disposal options, or are concerned about data security on their devices. Era prevent’s unwanted computers, laptops and related electronic equipment from being prematurely destroyed or recycled by offering Canadian organizations and individuals secure and accessible disposal options @ https://www.era.ca/

The City of Calgary and Edmonton have programs tailored towards E-Waste and more information regarding these initiatives can be found at the links below :
