e-Scrap for Camp was created by Sunnking in 2010 to support Camp Good Days and Special Times. Funds raised through recycling electronics are donated to help improve the quality of life for children, adults, and families whose lives have been touched by cancer. The combined efforts of this annual event make a huge difference, not only in the lives of the people affected by this dreaded disease, but also by ensuring the safe and responsible recycling of tons of electronics.
2020 will mark the 10th e-Scrap for Camp fundraising campaign. In the first 9 years, over 4 million lbs. of electronics were collected and recycled, resulting in over $100,000 donated to Camp Good Days on behalf of Sunnking.
Rochester and Buffalo area businesses and organizations are encouraged to gather electronics from their employees, friends and family members for a two week period. Sunnking provides boxes to collect items, and will pick them up for FREE! For every pound of electronics that Sunnking recycles from your organization, a portion of the proceeds is donated to Camp Good Days to fund future programs.

Camp Good Days and Special Times, a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for children, adults and families whose lives have been touched by cancer and other life threatening challenges, was founded by Gary Mervis in 1979, following the diagnosis of his youngest daughter, Teddi, with a malignant brain tumor. What was started to provide Teddi and 62 other children with cancer (21 from Rochester, 21 from Buffalo, 21 from Syracuse) with a residential camping experience, has grown to become one of the largest organizations of its kind, having served as model for other organizations and cancer treatment centers around the world. Providing residential camping programs and year-round recreational and support activities and events, Camp Good Days has served more than 44,000 campers from 22 states and 28 foreign countries. Camp Good Days maintains accreditation from the American Camp Association (ACA) and has been inducted into the Safety 1st Hall of Fame by Markel Insurance Company.
