Sunnyvale Community Services receives support from a variety of sources, including government grants, corporate donations, foundation grants, and individuals who want to help make a difference for their neighbors in need.
Our agency relies on the amazing dedication of volunteers to deliver food and other services to Sunnyvale residents in need of assistance. Individual adults, corporate groups, and church and organization groups are all welcome.
IMPORTANT! Educate yourself on the State’s current eviction protections.
From now until September 30, State law prohibits landlords from evicting tenants who are behind on rent due to a COVID-19 related hardship - but you must take certain steps to qualify for these eviction protections. Visit the State of California’s “Housing is Key” website for detailed information on these state protections and what you need to do to avoid eviction.

Whether you plan to itemize your 2021 deductions or not, the extension of the charitable contribution provisions from last year’s CARES Act may benefit you. Read more on our Ways to Donate webpage.
