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

Your generosity allows Sunnyvale Presbyterian Church to support people in the community through local agencies like Sunnyvale Community Services, Bill Wilson Center, Immanuel House and others.

Children's Ministry Mission Project

Children’s Ministry has partnered with the Bill Wilson Center’s Adopt A Family Program to provide Christmas present for a local family of 6. The parents, Veronica and Ralph, do not have any biological children of their own, but are adopting Katrina, Sophia, Franklin and Elizabeth! Each family member has given us a wish list of presents that they’d like to receive.

 

We are also collecting items for donation to the HomeFirst Shelter and San Jose Peace & Justice Center. If you would like to sign-up to help with our mission project, please use the following link. bit.ly/SVPCMissionProject2021

 

All donations must be given to the Children’s Ministry Staff by December 4th for drop-off the next morning. For more information, please contact childrens@sunnyvalepres.com.


Donate to Sunnyvale Community Services

On Communion Sundays (typically the first Sunday of each month), we are Turning the Tables on Hunger.  Formerly the "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.
