A partnership between Vecova and the Rotary Club of Calgary has taken a leap into the future with the donation of 5 new iPads.
The introduction of mobile tablet technology will allow Vecova employees to share data and critical client information efficiently and in real-time, and will help streamline how Vecova works in the community and supports those with disabilities.
“We knew this was a great opportunity because organizations like Vecova do so much good,” said Michael Pierson, Chair of the Rotary Club of Calgary’s Small Donations Committee. “We (as a committee) have the flexibility to support smaller projects that can often be difficult to fund, but we know will have a high impact. I have seen the benefit of Vecova’s many programs, and I know that this type of offering will make a meaningful difference.”
The Rotary Club of Calgary is a vital community leader and partner for many non-profits, and has been a crucial supporter of Calgary’s only non-profit bottle depot. Each summer, the Rotary Club teams up with the Vecova Bottle Depot employees and volunteers to manage bottle recycling stations during the club’s annual stampede BBQ. The events draw tens-of-thousands of people to share in the spirit of community, and by working with Vecova, the Rotary Club of Calgary is also helping to create and sustain employment for people with disabilities, fund life-changing programs and services, and champion recycling during the Calgary Stampede.
“The continued and increased support from the Rotary Club of Calgary demonstrates the critical value that strong community partnerships and long-term relationships can provide to organizations like Vecova,” said Ann-Marie Latoski, Director of Social Enterprise. “Investing in this technology has provided us with a critical tool that will enable front-line staff to work in innovative ways and support clients more efficiently.”
Statistics show that 1 in 7 Albertans live with a disability.
