About the Foundation
Sonny's Kids Foundation, Inc. was formed to honor the memory
of James L. "Sonny" Buchanan who had a love for
life and a love for the good in all people. In Maryland, Sonny
was actively involved in the Montgomery County Boys &
Girls Clubs and Montgomery County Crime Solvers and was a
mentor to many children in Montgomery County. He truly believed
that everyone should be given an opportunity in life to succeed
and have a chance to earn an education, regardless of background.
Sonny's Kids will honor Sonny's dreams by providing scholarships,
grants and educational funds. Currently, scholarships have
been given to several different programs, all supporting the
SKF mission to help kids. Several scholarships have been given
through the Boys & Girls Clubs, a special G.E.D. Center
has been set up at Mark Twain School in Rockville, Maryland,
and a grant has been made to continue a music program at Mt.
Rogers School in White Top, Virginia.
