Local news needs your support
Hoke County, we need you.
Our reporting staff at The News-Journal is working hard to bring you credible, up-to-date information on COVID-19 in Hoke County.
We are posting our coverage online at Hokenews.com, which we developed to quickly provide verified facts from authoritative sources. We’re writing about the spread of the virus, officials' orders, requests and advice, the resources available for those who need them, the challenges to local schools and businesses, and the health of the community.
We decided as a public service to provide free access to our stories on coronavirus. We will continue to do so. We don’t want a single family, a single employer left to guess what to do because they can’t get the right information.
This is, we believe, among the essential services that must continue in the days and weeks ahead.
You can help ensure the community continues to get that information with a tax-deductible donation – yes, tax deductible – to be sure we can keep our staff going. Help us today and we’ll help you in the challenging weeks and months to come. Thank you.
