March sustainers and supporters kept this newspaper going

by Melanie Jongsma, Publisher

LANSING, Ill. (April 2, 2022) – Thornton Township Board meetings. Updated mask mandates. Women’s History Month. Changes at the Chamber. Up and down temperatures. A variety of sports accomplishments. These topics and more were covered in 152 articles The Lansing Journal published during the busy month of March.

In the midst of this increase in news and the need for coverage, internally our freelance writing team has been going through adjustments as well. Job opportunities, relocations, and various other life events have changed the capacity and availability of some of our reporters for a season. Others stepped up and stepped in to get things done, and we are grateful.

Readers too stepped up, and we are grateful for you as well. The financial support you provide is what allows us to pay our reporters, host our website, and deliver a Daily News email every single morning. Your support is what keeps this newspaper going — through busy times and busier times! Thank you for responding to our requests for help.

Thank you, March sustainers

Sustained monthly giving is particularly helpful during busy times. Not only do those monthly gifts provide a foundation we can depend on, but also they require less administrative attention. That frees us up to focus on reporting, publishing, and delivering the news. So we are especially grateful for these monthly sustainers who gave during March:
