The Abbotsford News needs your support.

Facing changes together: Your community, your journalists

New platform allows readers to make a one-time or ongoing donation to support local journalism

  • May. 14, 2020 3:03 p.m.

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the world in ways that would have been almost unimaginable a few short months ago. With more rapid change inevitable and the time frame for a return to a new, predictable normal still unknown, a trusted, reliable and real-time source of information is more important than ever.

Abbotsford News is firmly committed to seeing you through the changes ahead, whatever they may be, but we need your help.

COVID-19 has wrought havoc on businesses across almost every sector and the Abbotsford News is no exception. For almost 100 years the local reporting that the Abbotsford News delivers to your door and on your devices, has been supported by local businesses and organizations. But while they navigate this sea-change towards their new normal, we’re asking you, our readers, to recognize the value of local journalism to our community by making a one-time or ongoing donation to support local journalism.

Abbotsford News covers the stories that matter to you and to our community. While COVID-19 is top-of-mind right now, we’ve spent years helping shape Abbotsford into the great place it is to live and work by highlighting local government decisions, supporting charitable groups, covering local sports and shining a light on those who might impinge on our quality of life.

We’re asking you to lock arms with us, as we look to better days ahead, doing what we do with dedication and pride.

By making a one-time or ongoing donation to Abbotsford News you can help ensure that our community continues to enjoy the benefits that come with a local community newspaper.

This is not a silver bullet to save local media but for those who care about our community and local journalism in Abbotsford, a donation offers the chance to show your support and ensure Abbotsford continues to reap the benefits that local journalism delivers.

Visit local.blackpress.ca/ABB to help. Thank you for your contribution.

Sincerely,

Carly Ferguson
