Archkids
In the fall of 2018, the Archkids architecture club designed an outdoor classroom pergola to benefit the students at the ALA Euclid campus. With the partnership of Kelly Weckman from READ MORE Lake Flato Architects and Armando Araiza, professor at UTSA Architecture Department, students explored the design of pergolas. They studied sun patterns to come up with interesting shade structures to provide much needed shade from the Texas sun. They used STEM techniques to manipulate materials to create their desired structure. Their end products were creative, whimsical and functional. Architect Allison Hu and her dedicated team met with the students to review their work and provide an interpretation of the students’ common themes. The students were not only involved in the conceptual design but also provided the architect with feedback during a design meeting in May 2018. In September of 2018, we hope to see the vision of the Archkids come to life at the Euclid campus. With the financial support of the SAISD Grant Foundation and the material and labor donated by Texas Timber Frames, we are on our way. We ask you to join in partnership with us by donating to support the extra cost for this project. This will allow us to add the details that will help complete the kids’ vision. Any amount small or large will help us bring the Archkids vision to life as well as to provide a unique space for our ALA students. Thank you in advance for your partnership.

Fox Tech Magnet High School for Health and Law Professions
1:1 Initiative-Student laptops
Fox Tech Magnet High School is a college preparatory campus and we are working towards a 1:1 initiative so that every student has their own laptop (chromebook) to use for READ MORE the duration of their 4 years in high school at Fox Tech. Many of our students are in dual credit via UTSA or SAC or dual enrollment courses via On Ramps at UT-Austin that require them to work online in order to access their curriculum and/or course materials. Teachers on campus also use Google classroom, Khan Academy and other databases regularly for curriculum enhancement. Even though we have desktop computers on campus, students are not able to take those devices home and cannot do much needed homework once they leave our campus. The 1:1 initiative would allow ALL students the same opportunity to complete work at home and on weekends, not just those fortunate enough to already have devices. Any and all donations are important to meet our goal of raising funds to purchase 450 laptops for the entire student body. We are excited to see how this initiative will enhance student learning and student results over the next four years. Thank you in advance for your valued support. All donations are tax deductible.

MARIACHI PROGRAM for FOX TECH ALA CAST
The FOX TECH ALA CAST MARIACHI is one of the most loved and respected departments in the San Antonio area. However, it is also the most struggling. The goal of READ MORE our department is to help further the studies of a music style that is cultural, beautiful, and complex, yet so often looked down upon. Students work extremely hard to raise funds selling donation-based performances and ticket sales for our concerts throughout the school year. This requires uniform accessories, music scores, instruments, instrument accessories, and instrument maintenance. Not to mention Group competitions fees, Vocal competition, hotel, meals, etc. Many students that are lucky enough are able to meet the school in the middle by finding support from their family. Unfortunately, most mariachi students come from the most underprivileged of backgrounds. We kindly ask for your help, as we try to raise amounts for what we cannot do on our own. Please help us provide these kids with the basic tools they need to support the art of Mariachi! Thank you for your donation! Any amount is appreciated! Please use the link and share with all your friends!

As some of you know, Jane has been fighting a cancer recurrence for quite some time. The treatment that she now most desperately needs, and that her body responds to, READ MORE is not covered by insurance. The uncovered portion of the treatment costs $12,500 per round of treatment.

It's time to gather all her supporters, and financially help her as much as we can. Lets help her win this battle. Lets give her our time, money, prayers, positive thoughts, and well wishes. Lets do this for Jane.

Puerto Rico Energy Security Initiative

Tax Exempt

Hurricane Maria made landfall in Puerto Rico on September 20, 2017 as a category 5 hurricane, destroying the electrical grid, severely damaging most buildings, and leaving Puerto Rico in a READ MORE state of humanitarian crisis. Directly following the hurricane, sonnen re-established connection with our premier partner, Pura Energía, to assess the damage and create a plan to help. After seeing the extent of the destruction on the island, sonnen and Pura Energía created the “Puerto Rico Energy Security Initiative” to support the Puerto Rican people by donating and installing 12 solar-powered microgrids in the areas most affected by the storm. The first microgrid was installed just 6 weeks after the hurricane. To this day, 12 humanitarian microgrids have been installed as part of the Puerto Rico Energy Security Initiative. These systems provide a long-term energy safety net, immediate energy capacity for life-saving services, and the humanizing return to normalcy that access to electricity can create for thousands of Puerto Ricans on a daily basis. The microgrids donated by sonnen and the del sol Foundation For Energy Security prove the concept that residential scale solar powered microgrids save lives, unify communities, and can also play a crucial role in disaster recovery. Help us create a safer energy security future for the people of Puerto Rico.

The annual Jacksonville Marine Corps Half Marathon and Freedom 5k will be held on Saturday, October 12, 2019, we are now on our 16th year. The city of Jacksonville has been READ MORE voted one of the top ten running cities in the nation by Runner’s World magazine. Volunteers from every branch of our military community, with support from corporate organizations and the civic community, will come together to promote this event and the mission of the Greater Jacksonville Area USO. Following in the traditions set by the internationally respected Marine Corps Marathon in Washington, D.C., the USO Armed Forces Half Marathon & Freedom 5K will continue to provide an opportunity for the Florida community of runners to interact with our military members and provide invaluable support to our local Veterans and deployed Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines. The inaugural event held on October 2, 2004, set the tone for making this one of the premier fall events in the Southeastern United States with over 2,500 runners from over fifteen states. What began as a race in the city of Jacksonville has become one of the premier running events in the SouthEast region as a celebration of running, physical fitness, and a way to salute our military and give back to the men and women who serve in the armed forces. The mission of the USO Armed Forces Half Marathon & Freedom 5K is to strengthen the bond between the civilian and military communities, promote sound physical health and fitness, and to raise funds for the Greater Jacksonville Area USO in support of all five branches of the military, including the Florida National Guard, and their family members.
