Rebuilding Business in the Peak to Peak — 2021 Local News Fund.

Like many media outlets, The Mountain-Ear is working hard to help rebuild business outreach in our region. While we offer these stories for free, it’s not free to us. Our journalists are out in this community every day, tracking down and verifying information about how these businesses have come through the pandemic, and how we all can help these communities rebuild. We will focus on covering news that we have not been able to focus on during Covid restrictions…really dig into local businesses and how they have survived the pandemic.

We’re doing it while the global pandemic continues to drag on the local economy, during a large reduction in local advertising because of a huge loss of income at these businesses. That financial challenge means we must find new ways to provide important local news and information at no charge to the businesses.

Many of you already subscribe, and for that, we are grateful. But we now are also asking subscribers and non-subscribers alike to help rebuild our small business community by increasing our coverage of this ongoing health crisis while expanding coverage of our local businesses and the people of our region.

If you believe local news and business is critical, please donate to Rebuilding Business in the Peak to Peak — 2021 Local News Fund, via Local Media Foundation, to make our reporting stronger. Contributions to this fund will help pay for local community-based journalists in each small town in our region to share the stories of the people and businesses where they live, and how they have survived the pandemic..trials and tribulations that make their businesses unique. We will include these businesses in the expanded podcast, print, and online editions of The Mountain-Ear.

Thank you for your continued support of The Mountain-Ear. We are YOUR community newspaper, since 1977!

Make sure to email your information to us, after you make a donation. So we can set you up with a complimentary subscription and thank you properly in our print and online publication. Email your info to [email protected]. The Mountain-Ear appreciates your generous donations, helping up Rebuild Business in the Peak to Peak.
