Saucon Source is a hyperlocal news site and information hub for Pennsylvania’s Saucon Valley area, including Hellertown and Lower Saucon Township, as well as the Southern Lehigh area and parts of Upper Bucks County. We also cover news in Fountain Hill, Lehigh County.

As community members, we are committed to giving back to the community that supports us, and have done that over the years through a variety of endeavors such as our Holiday Lights Contest & Fundraiser and Project Keep Hellertown Warm.
