Thank you for your continued support of StandUp for Kids - Silicon Valley. At this current time we are requesting only the items below.

If you wish to donate any of these items (or to enquire about other ways to help) please get in touch with us at siliconvalley@standupforkids.org

A monetary donation in any amount. When you give your donation of even $1, it allows us to purchase desperately needed items for our kids at a bulk price. It also allows us to fund programs such as our Outreach Center, Street Outreach, Housing Support, Send-A-Kid Home, and numerous other programs we offer our kids. EVERY dollar goes directly to supporting our kids as we are 100% all volunteer program.

We also understand that many of you enjoy shopping, or may have contacts that can supply items. Below is a list of items that we need daily to operate our Outreach Center, The Village. Everything makes a difference.

  • $5 Food Cards - to McDonalds, Burger King, Taco Bell, Subway, Starbucks, Jack in the Box and KFC. (these are all walking distance downtown).
