Local news needs your support
The coronavirus crisis has brought many local economies to near standstill, and many small businesses have put their advertising campaigns on hold. We completely understand their decisions and we will continue to support them any way we can.
That said, this new financial challenge means local, independent news organizations like River Journal, River Journal North and riverjournalonline.com must fight for our own survival while continuing to provide important local news and information during this unprecedented situation.
If you believe local news and information are critical, especially during crisis, please donate to this new fund to help us continue to serve our communities.
Contributions to this fund will ensure we have the resources needed to bring you the latest local COVID-19 news, but also to continue to bring you the information about our schools, businesses, and people that make the River Towns so amazing.
All donations to this fund are tax-deductible. Thank you for your support of River Journal and River Journal North during this critical time.
