Many thanks! âTo Mary and the other readers who have recently become monthly sponsors of Eastsider readers.
The Eastsider depends on you in several ways. Your visits to the site generate enough traffic for us to sell ads to businesses and organizations. Your tips, ideas and story 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 freelance writing fees to web hosting expenses. Your financial support will help us cover these costs and grow.
I pledge to provide free coronavirus coverage accessible to all. But to continue to do so, your financial support as a reader is more crucial than ever as our advertising revenues have taken a huge hit during the pandemic – and we still have to pay our bills.
Reader Sponsors will be recognized on our site and receive a set of neighborhood postcards. Your automatic monthly payment of just $ 5.99 per month can be canceled at any time. (But we hope you hang in there!).
One-off contributions are also welcome!
