Valley Churches United is kicking off their 30th annual spring Bucks For Hunger fundraising drive with a mailing that community residents have receivedrecently. 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, especially during this very uncertain times with COVID-19“, 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 to step up and give what they can. We are seeing many 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, PO Box 367, Ben Lomond, CA 95005, on Facebook or online at, or donate in person at 9400 Highway 9, Ben Lomond, Monday through Friday from 9am until 4pm.
