Since 2012, the Sunnyvale School District, Sunnyvale Rotary Club, and Sunnyvale Community Services and the YMCA have partnered to fight childhood hunger when school is out.
The supergroup established the annual Our Kids Our Community fundraiser, which helps serve thousands of meals each summer.
This year’s event raised more than $23,500 from the generous supporters from throughout the local community!!! Special thanks to the largest contributors El Camino Healthcare District, Sunnyvale Elks Lodge #2128, and local nonprofit Kindness in Deeds and Services (K.I.D.S.) founded by former Sunnyvale School District students, siblings Alison and Adam Mody, and even to host LinkedIn, whose sponsorship made the event possible.
Money raised will fund Sunnyvale School District’s Seamless Summer Feeding Program, which serves approximately 16,349 lunches and 8,924 breakfasts to Sunnyvale school-age children during the summer months. Sunnyvale Community Services Kid’s Summer Food Aid also benefits, which distributes an additional 2,500 bags of “kid-friendly” food during the summer months.
