Merchants Insurance Group is pleased to report the results of their participation in “eScrap for Camp”, an electronics recycling event conducted by Sunnking Electronics Recycling to benefit Camp Good Days.
Merchants partnered with Sunnking, a local electronics and e-waste recycler, to help collect unused and old equipment to be recycled in an environmentally-friendly way.
In addition to Merchants donating its own old electronic equipment, the company’s employees were invited to drop off old consumer electronics at the company’s Buffalo office for recycling. Spearheaded by the Merchants’ Information Technology Department, the company donated 4,293 lbs. of electronic materials for scrap.
With Merchants’ participation, and those of other businesses in Buffalo and Rochester, Sunnking was able to donate $13,357.68 for Camp Good Days, the second largest donation ever.
Sunnking has been running the program since 2010, and has now donated more than $128,000 to Camp Good Days, an organization that works to help improve the quality of life for children, adults and families whose lives have been touched by cancer.

About Camp Good Days
Camp Good Days and Special Times, Inc., a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization, is dedicated to improving the quality of life for children, adults and families whose lives have been touched by cancer through summer camping experiences and year-round events and activities. Camp Good Days was founded 42 years ago by Gary Mervis to provide a residential camping program for his daughter, Teddi Mervis, and 62 other children with cancer from Upstate New York. It has since grown to become one of the largest organizations of its kind in the world. Camp Good Days was the fourth program of its kind in the country and the first to be started by a layperson. Many of the programs and services started at Camp Good Days have been used as models for cancer treatment centers and organizations throughout the United States and Canada. All programs and services at Camp Good Days are offered free of charge to children with cancer and children that have or have lost a parent or sibling with cancer. Camp Good Days also hosts programming for adults with cancer and families coping with sickle cell anemia. The Camp Good Days’ Headquarters & Volunteer Training Center is located in Mendon, NY. Camp Good Days also maintains offices in Buffalo and Syracuse, NY.
