Sunny Point Café is helping to raise funds, awareness, and expand community engagement with local nonprofits.
When you visit the restaurant, you’ll find a collection envelope on your table where, should you choose to, you can donate to our nonprofit partner of the month. Sunny Point Café will convey all funds collected in these envelopes, along with a donation from the restaurant, to the selected nonprofit each month.
Some organizations we partner with ask for assistance with a particular program, while others are working to increase donations towards general operating expenses.
Below are the nonprofits we have supported since starting this program and the total amount raised during that month. Thank you for your support, we couldn’t do it without you!
