The coronavirus pandemic has dealt a heavy blow to businesses across the North Shore. We are no exception. Blank Slate’s six newspapers and theislandnow.com website rely on the advertising of local business and services to fund our award-winning coverage of the communities we serve. The closing or reduced offerings of those businesses brought on by this pandemic makes fulfilling our mission much more difficult – at a time when our coverage is more essential than ever to our readers.
Our newspapers and website also perform a second important service – a cost-effective way for businesses to reach consumers in print, online and by email. And during these difficult times, we have added an online directory for businesses and services to let consumers know that they are open, when and what they are offering. The directory listing is offered to the businesses at no cost.
To allow us to continue to perform these services as we have done in the past, we need your help. Please donate whatever you can afford to allow us to best fulfill our mission to you. Please make your contribution to quality coverage of your community by donating using the form below and let us know if you would like to receive or extend a subscription to one of our papers as part of your contribution.
