West Valley Community Services named nonprofit of the year

The Santa Clara County Library District is now accepting food donations at several SCCLD locations.

Cupertino-based West Valley Community Services has been named as Assemblymember Evan Low’s nonprofit of the year.

Founded in 1973, West Valley Community Services provides food, housing, and support services to low income and homeless individuals and families in the communities of Cupertino, Los Gatos, Monte Sereno, Saratoga, and West San Jose.

“Over the past 45 years, WVCS has provided a continuum of basic needs, including information and referrals, food pantry, transitional housing, affordable housing, financial assistance, family support, and case management services,” Assemblymember Low said in the announcement.

The announcement, which Rotary Club of Cupertino made jointly with West Valley Community Services, is part of the statewide annual CalNonprofits Day celebration.

“We are honored and proud to share this incredible recognition with our compassionate community of donors, volunteers, and partners,” West Valley Community Services Executive Director Josh Selo said.
