SASi needs your help…

Dear Editor,

Thank you for your weekly publication. I so enjoy all the articles, photos, etc.

I would like you to publish this letter asking for funds for the Senior Center. The Center is a 501(c) non-profit corporation and if anyone has not already tapped out on their contributions for the year, we could sure use some help.

When I read this morning that Toys for Tots raised $50,000+  this year, I am reminded of the generosity of this community. The Senior Center feeds between 20,000 and 25,000 meals per year between the meals served at the Center and the delivered meals. Right now, we are in desperate need of funds to get us through the end of January.

We did not have a fundraiser this fall as we were redoing the parking lot. This lack of funding has resulted in our immediate need.

If anyone can help, please send your donation (no amount too small) to Sandpoint Area Senior Center, 820 Main Street, Sandpoint 83864.

Thank you for your great publication. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Loris Michael

While we have you ...

... if you appreciate that access to the news, opinion, humor, entertainment and cultural reporting in the Sandpoint Reader is freely available in our print newspaper as well as here on our website, we have a favor to ask. The Reader is locally owned and free of the large corporate, big-money influence that affects so much of the media today. We're supported entirely by our valued advertisers and readers. We're committed to continued free access to our paper and our website here with NO PAYWALL - period. But of course, it does cost money to produce the Reader. If you're a reader who appreciates the value of an independent, local news source, we hope you'll consider a voluntary contribution. You can help support the Reader for as little as $1.

You can contribute at either Paypal or Patreon.

Sandpoint Reader LLC is a completely independent business unit; no big newspaper group or corporate conglomerate or billionaire owner dictates our editorial policy. And we want the news, opinion and lifestyle stories we report to be freely available to all interested readers - so unlike many other newspapers and media websites, we have NO PAYWALL on our website. The Reader relies wholly on the support of our valued advertisers, as well as readers who voluntarily contribute. Want to ensure that local, independent journalism survives in our town?
