Brockport electronics recycler Sunnking has launched registration for its 2021 e-Scrap for Camp fundraiser, which benefits Camp Good Days & Special Times.
The program recycles unwanted company electronics such as old phones and tablets to raise money for Camp Good Days & Special Times, a nonprofit organization that aims to improve the quality of life for children, adults and families whose lives have been impacted by cancer.
Businesses can register for the free event online through March 5. Rochester collections begin March 29, while Buffalo collections begin May 3.
“We want to provide the greatest return to the local kids that are unfortunately adversely affected by cancer and needing outside activities when it’s really hard to get out and do them,” said Sunnking Vice President Adam Shine. “Together with our business partners we’re focused on making this the biggest and best fundraising year we’ve seen.”
Sunnking provides boxes to gather devices in and businesses can recycle electronics from employees, friends and family members. Delivery and pickup are free and contactless. For every pound of electronics recycled from participating organizations, a portion of the proceeds is donated to Camp Good Days.
“We feel incredibly privileged during this time to announce our partnership with Sunnking for the 11th year,” said Lisa Booz, Western New York regional director of Camp Good Days. “The continuation of our programs through the pandemic is largely thanks to Sunnking’s exceptional efforts and all the local companies taking part.”
In 2020, some 345 businesses contributed to the event, raising nearly $12,000 for the nonprofit. Sunnking has donated more than $114,000 throughout the program’s existence.
