Throughout the year, the Hawkeye Newspaper Club releases quarterly issues and features advertisements available for purchase by local businesses. In these struggling times, we are offering more than 100 small businesses a free full-page advertisement each (typically valued at $200). The advertisements will be part of our final issue and will be sent to over 1,000 families throughout our district. We encourage businesses, in return for this free full-page advertisement, to pay it forward if they are in a position to do so.
Specifically, The Hawkeye Newspaper Club organized this fundraising page with all donations going directly to The Red Cross Foundation and their Covid-19 relief efforts. Any donation is appreciated. On Long Island there have been over 72 thousand confirmed cases of Covid-19, resulting in over 3 thousand deaths. The Red Cross Foundation is providing relief by supporting quarantine shelters, distributing food, connecting families, and supplying health and mental health services.
Together, we have the ability to support these efforts. It is important we can come together around this fundraiser and raise money for a good cause!
