Wish List

Food  (we are in need of healthy and nutritious items)



See our recent article in the Los Altos Town Crier.

Community Services Agency distributes over a ton of food each work day to low income individuals and families, minimizing their food-insecurity. Our "food pantry" expands limited budgets so people can afford to pay for that unexpected medical help and/or car repairs in addition to the basics: school supplies, transportation to a job, rent, and utilities.

Got food? We can always use more boxes of cereal, oatmeal, pop-top canned food items (fruits, vegetables, meat, etc.), pop-top fruits, vegetables, fruits, flour, sugar, oil, condiments, salad dressings, and so on. Check your fruit trees – Village Harvest will pick the fruit for you and bring it to us!

You can drop off food during normal office hours. Non-perishable, unopened food only. We can’t accept unopened food leftover from parties or events (cakes, sandwiches, salads, etc.)

Toys and Clothing

Holiday Sharing is an opportunity for us to take a break from our own hectic lives and experience the true meaning of the season by sharing and helping others in our community. Parents come to our office and "shop" (at no charge) for new toys, games, and clothing for their children (up to age 18). Our Holiday Sharing preserves the spirit of giving within families.

Children are given gifts from their parents - not from the “local charity.”

For Holiday Sharing donations of toys, games, clothing, and gift cards, contact: Volunteer Director LaDrea Clark at 650.964.4630 or lclark@csacares.org.
