Our Holiday Campaign Helps Families in Need
During the holidays, many workers have their hours cut, and school lunches are not available. Utility bills are higher, and many low-income families must choose between paying rent or buying food. Holiday gifts are a luxury.
Each holiday season, Sunnyvale Community Services gives extra food and a Safeway gift card to our families at Thanksgiving, and in December, each family receives two weeks of nutritious food, plus two gifts per child, and a practical household gift. The food will tide them over through the holiday season, and the gifts are often the only ones the children and families will receive.
Please help us prevent homelessness and hunger in our community by making a financial donation. You can donate online or send a check to:

Join Our Online Toy Drive!
Sunnyvale children in need are hoping for a happy holiday this year and you can make that happen by joining our ONLINE TOY DRIVE today!
We are very short on toys this year for our young clients so please be generous and share the Online Toy Drive link with your friends. All donations made online will be delivered directly to us in time for the Community Holiday Center in December. This year we anticipate providing over 2,000 children, ages 0 - 18, with toys and gifts.
If you prefer to donate a new toy or gift in person, please come to the donation desk at Sunnyvale Community Services on M-F from 8:30 AM - 5:00 PM, or the 1st and 3rd Saturday of each month from 9:00 - 11:30 AM. Be sure to check out our Wish List to see what we need most!
Make your gift in honor of friends and family!
Sunnyvale Community Services can send a letter acknowledging your monetary gift to Sunnyvale Community Services in honor of friends and family.
Other welcome donations
Sunnyvale Community Services is also collecting non-perishable food and new unwrapped gifts for children, teens, and households to distribute through the Community Holiday Center this holiday season.
All donations are gratefully accepted at Sunnyvale Community Services throughout the year.
If you are interested in running a food or gift drive at work, in your neighborhood, or at your place of worship, contact Carolyn Alexander at 408.738.4321 x210 or email@example.com.
