ABOUT US

Sunnyvale FISH is “Christians Who Care?about their neighbors in need.  Our work is sponsored by more than 20 congregations and many friends in the community. The help we give is not provided by any public or private agency. Food, clothing, and household goods are offered to those in need.  No legitimate request is left unfilled as long as resources are available. FISH workers are all volunteers. We do not pretend to be experts. We do not preach. We aim to serve. Our reward is to be of assistance. Your suggestions to improve our work will be appreciated.
