MISSION AND SERVICE

The crowd kept asking him, "What then are we supposed to do?" John told them, "Give food to the hungry, clothe the poor, and bless the needy."

—Luke 3:10–11

Serving the Community

Donate to Sunnyvale Community Services

On Communion Sundays (typically the first Sunday of each month), we are Turning the Tables on Hunger. What began as our monthly "Red Barrel" food collection is now a virtual food drive to serve our neighbors in Sunnyvale. Donate at church or online to Sunnyvale Community Services (SCS). The money collected will allow SCS to buy the most needed food, using their superior buying power with local partners.


Sunnyvale Community Services

Founded in 1970, Sunnyvale Community Services (SCS) is a nonprofit emergency assistance agency in the heart of Silicon Valley with the mission to prevent homelessness and hunger in our local community.

 

The goal of SCS is that all residents are safely and stably housed with food on the table, and with access to medical care and services. SCS addresses immediate critical needs to help low-income families and seniors who are often one bill away from hunger and homelessness with the help of over 2,500 community volunteers. SCS serves every eligible client who comes for help, never turning anyone away due to lack of resources.

 

In addition to financial aid, SCS distributes over 900 tons of nutritious food and produce year-round. SVPC has partnered with SCS for decades and we are grateful for their work in our community.


Bill Wilson Center

With an emphasis on ending youth and family homelessness, Bill Wilson Center programs focus on building self-confidence and developing personal assets so youth and families can permanently change the direction of their lives. BWC is committed to working with the community to ensure that every youth has access to the range of services needed to grow to be healthy and self-sufficient adults. Sunnyvale Pres has long invested in the work of BWC.


Immanuel House

The Immanuel House Refugee Project was established in 2015 to provide transitional housing to newly arrived refugees seeking freedom from persecution and the opportunity to thrive. Their vision is "A world where all people displaced by war and violence can find a safe and secure home." Immanuel House is a 501(c)(3) registered non-profit organization, located in San Jose.
