Businesses can sign-up for the free program from Feb. 8-March 5
Local electronics recycler Sunnking has launched registration for its 2021 e-Scrap for Camp fundraiser benefiting Camp Good Days. Businesses in Buffalo and Rochester can register online now through March 5.
The program recycles unwanted company electronics to raise money for Camp Good Days and Special Times, a nonprofit 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 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 Adam Shine, vice president of Sunnking. "Together with our business partners, we're focused on making this the biggest and best fundraising year we've seen."
Businesses and organizations in the Buffalo and Rochester areas are encouraged to sign-up to collect electronics from their employees, friends and family members for two weeks. 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.
"We feel incredibly privileged during this time to announce our partnership with Sunnking for the 11th year," said Lisa Booz, WNY regional director of Camp Good Days & Special Times. "The continuation of our programs through the pandemic is largely thanks to Sunnking's exceptional efforts and all the local companies taking part."
2021 marks the 11th year Sunnking has held the e-Scrap for Camp fundraiser.
In 2020, 345 businesses contributed as Sunnking gifted a check worth $11,761 to the nonprofit and had donated more than $114,000 throughout the program's existence.
