    Dear Sunnyside Community,

    Each fall & winter season, Sunnyside engages in a community-wide event called The Circle of Giving. Families are invited to participate as receivers or givers, creating a system of support through the seasons and holidays.

    Like many communities across the nation during this pandemic, Sunnyside has an increased number of families in need. It’s heartbreaking to hear stories from our neighbors who just want to have some semblance of normalcy during this season.

    Many of you have reached out, asking how to help. Here’s how:

    This year, to practice safe social distancing, the Circle of Giving will operate as a gift card based donation/request system. Please consider supporting this tradition by donating what you can to @SESCOVIDFund-2020. Please make a note in the Venmo donation to read “Circle of Giving”.

    If you’d like to receive, families can fill out this Circle of Giving Request Form to select which gift cards would be most helpful to their family. Requests can be made until Friday, December 4th.

    As always, we handle giving and receiving with discretion and all names remain confidential.

    Thank you so much for your generosity, kindness and support of one another.

    With love and gratitude,
