Ark Valley Voice’s first-ever “Christmas in July” giving campaign month is coming to an end shortly.
Our goal for this month is to raise $10,000 to go toward the salaries of our working journalists. Currently we are short of our goal but we still have a few days to make it. Won’t you please help?
This year, especially, we need your support. Like so many businesses during the pandemic, we worked for months from our home offices, on Zoom, and for several months for no pay. During that time we authored more than 2,000 news stories, publishing six days a week to keep you informed on the critical news that affected all our lives.
We did this because we believe in our mission, that truth should have a voice, and we believe that as news media, we play a role in protecting our democracy.
While other businesses have come roaring back, news advertising has not. Our advertising revenue is down considerably. As a free publication, we depend on advertising and donations to keep the lights on and the journalists paid. In fact, 98 percent of our income goes to the wages of working journalists.
PLEASE DONATE TODAY and help us reach our $10,000 goal to support local journalism!
Join us for the Christmas in July Wrap Up Party, from 5-7pm on August 6, on the corner of First and F Street. Make a donation and get a free beer.
