When we moved into our current building in 2003, we never imagined we’d run out of space. Since that time, we have increased our food distribution days from four per month to 22, with an average of 905 families coming every Produce Monday. The generosity of our supporters, including 2,500 volunteers, makes it happen, but our current site limits our services. We’ve utilized every inch of space and positioned staff at satellite offices in Sunnyvale.
After much planning and preparation, we are ready to take this next step and enhance our ability to serve our community. SCS is happy to announce that we are looking to move into a larger building in 2020. In preparation for the move, the City of Sunnyvale has agreed to buy our current building and allow SCS to remain here until our new building is move-in ready.
We have received seed funding from the City of Sunnyvale, Jay Paul, LinkedIn, the SCS Board of Directors, and many individual donors. But we need your help. It’s going to take a village to help us buy a new building.
Please join us! As you plan your annual giving to SCS, we ask that you consider an additional gift to our building fund.
We will share more about our plans in the coming months. Thank you for your help in preventing homelessness and hunger in our community!
Executive Director, Sunnyvale Community Services
