Local news needs your support

Dear readers and subscribers,

Since our inception in 2014, — an independent, local, women-owned business — has been dedicated to bringing South Orange and Maplewood all the news that local residents need to be responsible, informed citizens. We've been supported through advertising and subscriptions.

Now with our local economy near standstill, and advertising along with it, we are facing a new financial challenge.

We are deeply grateful to our subscribers and advertisers for keeping us going this long. However, we need more help as we fight for our survival.

Due to the efforts of the good people at the Local Media Association, you can now make a tax-deductible contribution to Village Green through the COVID-19 Local News Fund. Please donate so that we can keep bringing you the news and providing a platform to promote local businesses.

In addition, we pledge to continue providing all essential public health information and COVID-19 updates and preparedness coverage free outside of our paywall — while continuing to follow other important stories involving our township governmental bodies, school district and public agencies.

With your help, we can all endure this crisis.

Thank you for your support — and be well!

Mary Barr Mann & Carolyn Parisi
