Fire Victims: Twin Pines Manor Apts

$33,034 of $55,000 goal

Raised by 287 people in 34 months
On Friday, April 15, 2016, a two alarm fire at the Twin Pines Manor Apartments in Sunnyvale, Ca. caused significant heat, smoke and water damage, making all 81 units within the complex uninhabitable. 110 residents were affected; at least 50 are immediately in need of shelter and provisions. 

With the help of the American Red Cross, the City of Sunnyvale is housing families at the Senior Center this weekend until more permanent shelter can be established. 

Cash donations received through this campaign, minus gofundme's administrative fees, will be administered by the City and dispersed to the families through Sunnyvale Community Services.

Sunnyvale Community Services is accepting food, new clothing, gift cards, or financial donations for the victims of the fire. Donations can be dropped off at 725 Kifer Road, Sunnyvale.

Alternatively, donations can be made online to the American Red Cross, select donate funds and disaster relief, and dedicate the donation in honor of Twin Pines Manor Apartments - Sunnyvale. Donations made to the American Red Cross will support the emergency services provided by the ARC for temporary housing and personal needs.

This campaign was created by Yvette Blackford, Senior Management Analyst with the City of Sunnyvale on behalf of the Office of the City Manager. Please direct any questions to the Office of the City Manager at 408-730-7480.

DONATION UPDATE (4/18/16):
The City of Sunnyvale is very grateful for the generous support from our community. On behalf of Sunnyvale Community Services, they are specifically requesting:
• Cash donations to help residents pay for motels and future financial needs such as rent, deposits, utilities, etc.; donations can be made to SCS or through the GoFundMe campaign
• Gift cards to local restaurants so families can get a hot meal while at motels (e.g., Denny's, Hobee's, Panera, In-and-Out Burgers)
• Gift cards to local grocery stores (e.g., Safeway, Lucky)
• Gift cards to local retail stores (e.g., Target)

At this time, Sunnyvale Community Services is not accepting used items (clothing, furniture) and is discouraging donations of material items since the families are in motels and cannot store them.
