Ukrainian Canadian Congress Toronto Branch
During the Holiday Season, many companies and organizations replace their old computers and monitors with the new ones. The Ukrainian Canadian Congress Toronto Branch is calling on all Ukrainian Canadians to talk to their companies or organizations both in Canada and Ukraine to donate their used computers to schools and orphanages in Ukraine.
Canada-Ukraine Foundation, which is a registered Canadian charity, can provide a donation letter and a tax receipt to your organization. Please spread the word among your friends and colleagues.
Send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at +1-416-6244571 (Oleksandr Romanko) if your company can donate computers.
The project is supported by Ukrainian Canadian Congress – Toronto Branch, EuroMaidan Canada, Canada-Ukraine Foundation, Ukrainian Canadian Professional and Business Association of Toronto.
