Review for Sunnyvale Community Services, Sunnyvale, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Unfortunately, the agency¹s slogan is truer than ever: ³Our Business is Booming, and That¹s Not Good.² As a banker, I look at the numbers. Just four years ago, we spent $390,000 on financial aid for clients; last year, $610,000. Four years ago, we had 750 families in our food programs and gave out $660,000 of food. Now, over 1,300 families participate, and last year, we gave out $1,335,000 of food. All of these increases were possible thanks to generous community and corporate support as well as dedicated volunteers‹all of which keep our overhead expenses under 10%.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the countless letters from clients who said the help they received kept a roof over their heads, the utilities connected, food on the table, and prescriptions filled.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Helping people who are trying their best to help themselves and working with a very diverse group of volunteers and staff.

Should this review be counted for a specific campaign?
