Holiday Campaign


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!

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 9:00 AM - 11:30 AM and 12:30 PM - 4:00 PM. 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 the Director of Operations at 408.738.4321 x 210 or

Rides for Toys

Thank you to all who joined us for the 2019 event.  

In case you missed us, we received several hundred toys that will be given to those in need during our annual Holiday Center. Those who brought a new, unwrapped toy or gift card got to have a ride on a real Sunnyvale fire engine and received a $5 coupon to the Downtown Winter Ice Rink.

We look forward to seeing you in 2020 - rain or shine!
