The Sonny Project

Albuquerque, NM – July 24, 2014 STC is spearheading a special crowdfunding project to help raise funds for a worthy cause that we’d like you to know about.

STC recently closed on the purchase of the First Baptist Church site at Central and Broadway as the future home for the Innovate ABQ headquarters. An unusual situation has developed as a result of the purchase of the property. The Noon Day Center, which is part of the First Baptist Church property recently purchased by STC, is located just west of the church building. Noon Day relies on volunteers to staff its many activities and services. Some of those volunteers are also homeless. For years, Noon Day has relied on a very loyal, disabled homeless client named Sonny as their security person for the buildings on the property. Sonny has done a good job patrolling but now that ownership of the church has changed hands, Sonny can no longer live at the church. STC would like to help Noon Day raise funds to purchase a used camper for Sonny to live in at Noon Day’s new facility.

You can help too. Your donation in any amount made on the Main Street Crowd crowdfunding website will go to a special fund for the camper—and it’s tax deductible. See the details below.
