A big "Thank You!" to Shelly, and the other readers who have recently become monthly Eastsider Reader Sponsors.
The Eastsider depends on you in numerous ways. Your visits to the site generate enough traffic so we can sell ads to businesses and organizations. Your story tips, ideas and suggestions help us stay on top of what's going on.
But your financial support is also needed.
Like any other business or household, The Eastsider has many bills to pay, from freelancer fees to web hosting expenses. Your financial support will help cover those costs and help us grow.
I'm committed to provide coronavirus coverage that is free and accessible to all. But to continue to do this your financial support as a reader is more crucial than ever as our ad revenue has taken a huge hit during the pandemic -- and we still have to pay our bills.
Reader Sponsors will be recognized on our website and receive a set of neighborhood postcards. Your monthly, automatic payment of only $5.99 a month can be cancelled at any time. (But we hope you hang in there!).
-- Jesús Sanchez, Publisher
