If you didn’t catch the announcement yesterday, our summer member drive has begun, and that means we’re asking for a donation of any amount to help support our work.
Watershed Voice is not your traditional hometown newspaper. We’re an online nonprofit magazine that publishes five days a week, and unlike most print media, advertisers don’t pay for the bulk of what we do, our readers do. We’re also not as interested in breaking news as we are in helping our readers better understand what is happening in their community, both good and bad, with detailed and tactful reporting. Here a few recent examples of the stories we’ve done, and would like to do more often, with your support:
- In February, we looked into why so many Three Rivers residents were seeing discolored water running out of their taps.
- In May, we reported how one clinic is making mental health services more accessible for Three Rivers students. By removing accessibility and financial barriers between students and mental health services, the PAWS (Prevention and Wellness Service) clinic is saving lives and dollars for those most at-risk.
- In June, we detailed how Linda Shank, now 26, was sexually groomed and abused from the age of 15 by a church youth leader for the better part of a year, and how despite repeatedly seeking help from church leadership and law enforcement, little was done for her.
Help ensure Watershed Voice has the resources to continue producing these types of stories by making a donation today. We accept donations via CashApp ($WatershedVoice), Venmo (@WatershedVoice), or on our website.
