Help local kids in our community start back to school with a new backpack and all of the supplies needed! You can sponsor a student-in-need by making a $40 donation.
The amazing generosity of the community has supported and made possible this Back to School program now in it’s 28th year.
Every year, as summer draws to a close, Valley Churches United Missions helps our school-age clients make the transition back to the classroom. For each child who qualifies, we provide a new, high-quality backpack filled with school supplies. These backpacks help ensure that our youngest clients are prepared for the classroom; the kids love the brand names and popular colors.
Beginning in July, we hand out backpack applications to families with school-age children. To ensure that all of our recipients are enrolled in local schools, we ask parents to provide a recent report card for each child.
Monetary donations can be made online at vcum.org, on Facebook, or mailed to Valley Churches United at PO Box 367, Ben Lomond, 95005. You can also drop off donations Monday through Friday 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. at Valley Churches United. We’re located at 9400 Highway 9 on the corner of Highway 9 and Glen Arbor Road in Ben Lomond, California
