Sunnking, an electronics recycling company based in Brockport, NY, has re-opened registration for its annual e-Scrap for Camp fundraiser in Buffalo after a 4-month pause due to COVID-19. The program raises money for Camp Good Days and Special Times, a non-profit organization that aims to improve the quality of life for children, adults, and families whose lives have been affected by cancer. The deadline to sign up is September 25, 2020.
The FREE business-focused fundraiser was to take place in May; however, the company decided to postpone electronics collections when non-essential companies had to close their doors during the statewide lockdown. “It wasn’t the right time to hold an event like this,” said Robert Burns, Director of Marketing for Sunnking. “Priorities have changed a lot this year, and we were all focused on the health and safety of our employees and staff. But cancer doesn’t slow down because of a pandemic, so we can’t either, and that’s why we were always determined to keep the program going.”
Through the donation program, Sunnking works with local businesses to recycle unwanted electronics, generating funds for Camp Good Days and Special Times. 2020 marks the 10th year Sunnking has held the e-Scrap for Camp fundraiser. In 2019, Sunnking gifted a check worth $15,496 to the non-profit and has donated more than $100,000 throughout the program’s existence.
“The program is super-easy, and it’s a win-win for the community,” said Lisa Booz, WNY Regional Director of Camp Good Days & Special Times. “By donating those old computers and devices, you can directly put a smile on someone’s face, which we all could use right now. Through this program, we are gifted the advantage of raising awareness about our organization and helping the environment.”
Businesses and organizations in the Buffalo area are encouraged to sign-up to collect electronics from their employees, friends, and family members for one week during October. Sunnking provides boxes to gather those devices and offers free, contact-less delivery and pickup. For every pound of electronics recycled from participating organizations during the fundraiser, a portion of the proceeds is donated to Camp Good Days to fund future programs.
How It Works
- Each participating location collects electronics from employees, friends, and family for one week during October.
- Collection boxes and pallets will be provided by Sunnking the week before each location’s scheduled collection at no cost.
- Electronics will be picked up by Sunnking the week after the scheduled collection week and recycled at no cost.
- Sunnking will track and record the net weight of electronics recycled from each participating location.
- At the end of the campaign, Sunnking will donate money to Camp Good Days for every pound of electronics recycled.
