I am a volunteer and donor of seven years with Sunnyvale Community Services. We are a nonprofit organization that works to prevent homelessness and hunger in our community. We have many programs to help our families, children, seniors, veterans and homeless. As a volunteer in several programs I get to see firsthand how very much we are able to assist our people. Sunnyvale Community Services has the finest and most caring staff. I am truly honored to be a part of this wonderful organization.
Sunnyvale Community Services is an wonderful organization dealing with hunger and homelessness. I started volunteering at SCS almost two years ago I love every minute of it. It is so rewarding to be part of something that helps people that have such a need. No one goes away hungry, ever...I started as a bag lady working in the bread section. Bread and pastries are donated, volunteers pick up and more volunteers sort and bag. These items are then given out to anyone who needs them. I also work as a receptionist at the front desk. It is wonderful to be able to greet the clients with a smile and assist them with meeting with the caseworkers who are amongst the most caring, helpful and capable people I have every met. SCS operates with a very small staff who are spectacular and their volunteers. This organization really knows how to do it. It is an honor to be part of SCS and the wonderful staff and volunteers . I hope to be around for a very long time.
So grateful for this incredible resource in our community. They are innovative and collaborative in finding creative ways to meet basic needs in our community.
Everyone is here to help those less fortunate. No one is ever turned away. No one goes hungry. SCS has great community support.
SCS has been providing wonderful service to Sunnyvale residents for many years.
Sunnyvale Community Services has done an exceptional job in providing much needed food and living essentials to the people of Sunnyvale who are in desperate need of our support. I am blessed not to need these services for myself, but I see the way that they benefit my neighbors and that means a lot to me. SCS is well managed, which means that donations are used efficiently and costs are well controlled.
Sunnyvale Community Services is an outstanding organization that helps individuals and families in need get back on their feet. They have several programs that reach many different members of our community including the elderly, school-aged children, veterans, and the homeless. My in-laws noticed a woman living on the street in their neighborhood. I called SCS to notify them and they had a case worker there soon after to help her. I have nothing but praise for Sunnyvale Community Services!
I have been a supporter of this agency for 40 years, working with their Christmas Center and on their board, and now as a donor. They do so much good for the community, and involve so many willing volunteers, plus most of the donations go to help families and individuals in need, and are not wasted on administration. My nonprofit organization of choice.
The staff and volunteers working for Sunnyvale Community Services are doing tremendous work in Sunnyvale helping to prevent homelessness and hunger in our community. This is a well-run and organized nonprofit focused on fulfilling its mission.
I am always amazed at what Sunnyvale Community Services does to help prevent homelessness as well as help those that are homeless to get back on their feet. They also help to make sure that the children of Sunnyvale have enough healthy food to eat. Great job!
Sunnyvale Community Services is focused on preventing homelessness and hunger in and around Sunnyvale. They make the best use of every dollar given and every hour committed. Please help us make a difference
Sunnyvale Community Services is run by an amazing team of dedicated, enthusiastic and tireless staff members and volunteers. They provide much needed food and emergency financial aid to low-income citizens of Sunnyvale. I am proud and honored to be on the board of such a well run and effective organisation.
Having been a board member for almost six years I've been able to see all the great strides that are being taken to help our clients get the help the need. Healthy choices of food, temporary housing, and backpacks for the students.
Sunnyvale Community Services takes on the challenge to preventing homelessness and hunger.
With the high cost of living in Silicon Valley (rising rents, increased food costs, etc), there are thousands at risk of losing the roof over their head- or having to choose between rent and food. The Executive Director, the amazing staff, dedicated donors, and committed volunteers who all make it all happen. It's true community at work.
I have been volunteering with SCS for 3 1/2 years and this is a blessing to be part of such a great organization. The clients are well cared for and the volunteers work very hard to accomplish that care. The agency has expanded beyond belief in the time I have spent here and our programs range from food to housing and we try to not turn anyone away. This agency is an integral part of the community and I don't know what we would do without it.
Sunnyvale Community Services is the final safety net and brings hope, food and shelter to theist needy.
I love the mix of practical assistance and advocating for policy to address underlying social issues that keep silicon valley unliveable for many of its citizens. Hats off
Sunnyvale Community Services provides a lifeline for thousands of Sunnyvale residents. The agency provides financial support, food, clothing, and various other types of assistance. In December it hosts a Christmas boutique, where local residents come "shop," selecting Christmas gifts for each family member, including Mom (e.g., brand-new kitchen appliances such as waffle makers or slow cookers), and choosing food for the holidays. SCS arranges for monthly food deliveries to homebound seniors, provides weekend food to needy families, and helps hundreds with one-time needs. The agency's staff are uniformly compassionate, dedicated professionals who are committed to helping the less fortunate. It is a true honor to do volunteer work with SCS.
Sunnyvale Community Services is a great org. I found out about them about seven years ago. I have been a monthly donor ever since. I found out about SCS because I found out about the needs that we have in our community and the work that they do to help the less fortunate or those that are struggling. I appreciate that SCS leverages my donations to make the maximum positive impact on the community. SCS reflects all the best qualities of Sunnyvale and its volunteers.
Sunnyvale Community Services is a fantastic resource in our community. They truly care about the people they are helping. They are excellent at maximizing the value they provide from the donations they receive. They are fantastic about engaging the community to help people who are in need.
Sunnyvale Community Services really helps the Sunnyvale low income families. Many have nowhere else to turn to. They are well respected in their area.
Review from Guidestar
Sunnyvale Community Service cares!!! Their clients are treated wonderfully and above all else with respect and dignity. I've been volunteering with them for the past several years and love helping them out with the Christmas Center in December. They have so many opportunities for your to volunteer and it will truly help families in our community!!! At this moment, the company I work for is putting on a Back to School Supply Drive for the children of their clients. It is so rewarding to see how grateful the parents and children are. Visit their offices and you'll get hooked!!!
i know Sunnyvale community services as a donater. They are of great service to people in need and making it wonderful to donate time or goods. Proud to have a well run organization in my community.
When my children were young and both myself and my husband were out of work Sunnyvale Community Services helped to make it possible for our children to play soccer and to swim at the community pools. This allowed them to still have a normal childhood and not feel different from the other kids. This small act of kindness stayed with me and I have been donating to SCS for many years and am currently helping out as a volunteer. I am always impressed with the efficiency, resourcefulness and dedication that I witness whenever I am able to help out. SCS provides vital services of quality and care whether it is helping someone with their rent payments, finding shelter & blankets for another or making sure that a child has a new backpack filled with school supplies. Each client is treated with dignity and compassion. I highly recommend Sunnyvale Community Services!
SCS is very compassionate and efficient with their resources. They are able to effectively leverage volunteers from the surrounding residential and business community that serves to enlighten others on the plight of poverty and hunger locally.
I'm so proud to be able to help SCS in a small way and proud to be associated with them.
