This drive is very much appreciated by Emergency Housing Consortium (now known as Home First) of Santa Clara County. We generally order the sleeping bags from Walmart, pick them up from Walmart in Milpitas in a convoy of minivans and then deliver them to the Sunnyvale Armory (EHC Shelter), 620 East Maude Ave, Sunnyvale, CA. At the distribution site, all are welcome; its especially informing for children to see and have contact with people in need. No limits on numbers of people that can show up for the distribution. Contact: Balaji Venkatraman.
The Sunnyvale Armory closed its doors in 2014. The Community Service team scouted new places that serve the needy and the distribution was expanded across the Bay Area.
- Sleeping bag count : 250
- Sites served : 6 each site took in different numbers based on their needs ranging from 20-75 bags
