On November 27, Senator David J. Valesky presented Lynn Hy and Liz Occhino from the Central New York Food Bank with a check for $2,486.65. Included in the donation was a portion of the proceeds from the electronics recycling event held in September in partnership with Sunnking Electronics Recycling and Time Warner Cable. Along with him are Alice Kim, northeast government relations director for Time Warner Cable, and Steve Porubek from Time Warner Cable.
Sunnking collected about 48,000 lbs. of old and unused electronics at the event, then donated a percentage of its profits from the event to the Food Bank. Time Warner Cable collected donations of food from its employees and also made a cash donation. Information about the Food Bank is available at www.foodbankcny.org for anyone who wishes to donate or volunteer.
