Buffalo, N.Y. (WKBW release) -- Sunnking, Inc. has donated over $8,000 to Camp Good Days and Special Times through its “E-Scrap For Camp” campaign.

The partnership was established earlier this year in order to raise money to help send children diagnosed with cancer to camp.

E-Scrap For Camp encouraged local businesses in Buffalo to sign up to collect old, broken, used, or unwanted electronics and equipment from their office and employees for responsible recycling with Sunnking.

The campaign ran throughout the month of April to coincide with Earth Day, and there were also four community e-cycling events hosted by Sunnking at various business locations.

For each pound of electronic scrap that was collected, Sunnking made a monetary contribution to Camp Good Days. An additional $500 dollars was also donated by Sunnking on behalf of Ciminelli Development Co., which collected the largest volume of e-scrap at 23,691 pounds.

“The official results are in, and Sunnking was overwhelmed by the positive response from the campaign,” says Adam Shine, Sales Manager at Sunnking. “We coordinated the fundraising efforts from 65 companies in the Buffalo area who participated and collected a total of 251,021 pounds of electronics. We are extremely thankful for all of the businesses who signed up, and I think that everyone can agree that it’s a great feeling to help such a noble charity while helping to save the environment at the same time.”

A total of $8,030.63 dollars was donated to Camp Good Days & Special Times. Because of the huge effort put forward by these participating businesses, children affected by cancer will be able to enjoy camp at Camp Good Days.

Forty children from the Western New York area will be participating in the Junior Good Days program this year during the week of August 2 - 5.

“Children at Camp Good Days are given the chance to enjoy some of the childhood that cancer has taken away from them,” said Lisa Donato, WNY Regional Director of Camp Good Days, “No worries about hospital visits, chemo or radiation that week… Just lots of giggles and fun activities. Even if a child does need to have a treatment or procedure that week… Our devoted staff and volunteers make sure the kids still have the best week of their lives.”
