Valley Churches United is kicking off their 29th annual Spring Bucks For Hunger fundraising drive with a mailing that community residents will receive this week. The year-round food pantry is looking forward to the community support that helps fill the pantry shelves and provides assistance to local qualified residents in need. Valley Churches United is a donor-supported, volunteer-powered nonprofit organization, not a church, which serves low-income households in San Lorenzo Valley, Scotts Valley and Bonny Doon.

“The wonderful generosity of our local community will help us keep the food pantry and other client programs going strong through the spring and summer months”, said Executive Director Lynn Robinson. “As we know, hunger never takes a holiday, and we don’t receive government funding. This fundraising drive is an extremely important opportunity for our amazing community of friends and neighbors to step up and give what they can. We are seeing new clients who never thought they would be in a position to ask for help and we can help lift them back up with the help of this financial support.”

Tax deductible donations may be sent to the Valley Churches United 2019 Bucks for Hunger Drive through the brochure arriving in mailboxes, online at, or donate in person at 9400 Highway 9, Ben Lomond, Monday through Friday from 9am until 4pm.
