MovINNg Along: Buying & Selling Buildings, Revising Certificates of Incorporation
July 26, 2011
The INN (Interfaith Nutrition Network) is a not-for-profit corporation that provides food, shelter, and support services to the hungry and the homeless of Long Island. Founded in 1983 as a single soup kitchen run in Hempstead, New York by a small group of volunteers, the organization soon grew into a network of soup kitchens located in several Long Island communities. Today, in its quest to reduce hunger and address homelessness, The INN runs 19 soup kitchens, feeding more than 5,500 per week, as well as emergency shelters and a long-term housing program. The organization operates via volunteers, donations, and support from their local communities to accomplish its goals.
Peter Curry has worked closely with The INN for many years. He serves on their board of directors and offers his legal counsel on a pro bono basis. One such matter Peter has handled involves The INN’s buildings. To secure funds for some of their long term housing, The INN received New York State grants. After holding and using the buildings for the 20 years required by law, The INN sought to sell those buildings in order to buy more functional residences. Peter has helped, and continues to help, them work towards this goal. Along the way, David Curry and other attorneys have aided Peter in various building sales.
