the printerworks west partner
Our Pandemic Partner
PrinterWorks West is committed to giving back to the community and creating a more sustainable environment within the printing industry. Working with the Brenda Strafford Centre as the first organization to partner with, we strive to reduce the printing industry's environmental footprint. We also aim to lessen the digital divide in our communities.
PrinterWorks West is a major advocate when it come to giving to those in need. This partnership was built on the premises of philanthropy and to lead by example.
Creating Partnerships that last
With many companies and organizations moving their employees to work remotely from home, it became apparent of how many businesses were not able to afford the technology to support those working remotely in a seamless manner.
Currently, individuals and organizations do not have the means to pay high prices for technology like printers, copiers, or scanners. The closures of non-essential environments that would usually offer printing, copying, and scanning during the pandemic, including libraries, has affected everyone. This need was the reason why we created the pandemic partnership.
Not all organizations can suddenly help subsidize personal printing and scanning devices for their staff. Especially not after sudden costs associated with closing and potentially deciding between office equipment and keeping staff on an already tight budget.
That is why PrinterWorks West wanted to help donate refurbished or new devices with competitive pricing to meet organizations needs and also their budget.
The Brenda Strafford Centre will be their first organization to reap the benefits. PrinterWorks West hopes to work with more organizations like them in the future years to come. The Brenda Strafford Centre provides shelter, supported housing, and comprehensive services including counselling, case management, instrumental needs, life skills training, employment education, social programs and therapeutic child and youth services to women and children leaving situations involving family violence. Families can live at Brenda Strafford Centre for up to 30 months while they rebuild their lives in their safe and secure facility. Each year more than 300 children call Brenda Strafford Centre home.
Reducing Environmental Footprint
PrinterWorks West believes that we can help our communities by reusing unwanted printers and providing competitive rates. By refurbishing printers and donating them to organizations, we reduce our environmental footprint and support local organizations that may not be able to afford a new printer.
Although the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic inspired our pandemic partnership, our goal is to continue to provide refurbished printers and low competitive pricing so that organizations too, get a chance.
PrinterWorks West aims to establish a better environment by reusing our unwanted or used printing devices and donating them to charities and organizations in need across Alberta. We aim to ensure that every Alberta-based organization receives the lowest possible pricing when it comes to their Managed Print Services.
We are here to help charities and organizations receive refurbished printers and print solutions. PrinterWorks West is also committed to helping our environment by lessening the impact technology has on our planet.
We have donated over $3,000 so far to The Brenda Strafford Centre. We have held a Bottle Drive Fundraiser and a Christmas Toy Drive which both were very successful. We are looking forward to more volunteering and community events to help this organization.
