Sunpro Solar, Unirac Donate Solar Installation to Joy Junction

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- Sunpro Solar, a national leader in residential solar power, joins Unirac, a solar mount manufacturer, on a mission to donate and install solar energy panels that will power facilities for Joy Junction, a homeless shelter in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Joy Junction provides assistance to the homeless population and underserved families and individuals in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Unlike other shelters in the area, the organization believes that no one should be turned away and that families should be kept together.

In light of COVID-19, many in the community are left vulnerable and without the means to self-quarantine or shelter-in-place; a situation that causes a significant draw on the resources Joy Junction needs to do its work - dramatically more than pre-pandemic.

The donated solar installation from Sunpro Solar will make sure that hundreds of dollars every month are used to support Joy Junction's efforts in the community and not diverted to pay for electricity costs. Solar power provides a cost-saving solution for the shelter that will last long after the pandemic has passed.

"If the COVID-19 pandemic has shown us anything about our [solar] industry, it is that we are resilient, we are tenacious, and we care about our fellow human beings," says Unirac's Karen Paramanandam.

"Our company was founded with the mission to change lives and make our communities a better place," said Marc Jones, Founder and CEO of Sunpro Solar. "We are proud to partner with great companies like Unirac to help support Joy Junction's world-changing work."

Both Sunpro and Unirac encourage residents in the Albuquerque area to visit for other ways to help Joy Junction in its work with the homeless and vulnerable.

5rand5’s New Crowdfunding Shopping Cart Helps People Help Each Other Anonymously

ATLANTA, Ga. -- 5rand5 LLC has launched its people-based shopping cart crowdfunding platform, ( Donors can send as little as a $5 tax deductible donation through the shopping cart, or send donations directly. Donors have an option to do a random donation to five different individuals or families in need, and they can choose who will receive their contribution. Both donor and receiver will still remain anonymous.

The majority of users that are seeking funds are the homeless, families with children and disabled veterans. The organization also helps a small amount of people in the arts industry and even those just seeking gas money. Donors are able to use the support by category feature to find and add the people to their shopping cart that they want to give their contributions. There is no minimum or maximum number of people or causes to support, and handles all the distribution of funds to the recipient without disclosing any of the donor's personal information.

There is a vetting process for each donation seeker on the platform, and those in the homeless category have to submit documentation from local shelters. The primary focus for the platform is to help homeless families with children, however other askers are allowed to seek support from the platform. College students, animal rights organizations and unemployed people are also accepted, but with limited space. Each recipent is required to send in proof of their current situation before being able to accept donations.

"We are just starting out with small community donations until people learn more about us," says founder Lisa L. Johnverrell. "Our goal is to one day raise larger amounts for homeless shelters and individuals across the United States, but for now we can help a few individuals and families at a time."

Donations made directly to to be distributed are tax-deductable, but direct donations are also allowed. The site encourages the donors to use the shopping cart for maximum secure transactions, but also wanted to keep the direct payment option for those that want to help others immediately.

"Donations can be received for 90 up to 180 days once listed," says Johnverrell. "Our platform is not for raising a large amount of funding at once, and that separates us from other charity based crowdfunding sites."
