Help the Rimbey Review continue its mission to provide trusted local news

The Rimbey Review continues to be the community’s local, trusted news source throughout the pandemic

What a difference a month makes.

If you asked most people in early January what 2020 had in store, a public health crisis threatening the lives of thousands and causing catastrophic economic damage would likely not be on the list.

As the world and, more locally, Rimbey adapts to the abrupt new normal caused by COVID-19 — many businesses have had to shift the way they provide services and even in many cases shut down entirely, disrupting the lives of our families, friends and neighbours.

The Rimbey Review continues to be the community’s local, trusted news source throughout the pandemic — providing accurate information when readers need it the most.

Throughout the crisis, readers have turned to us for accurate and reliable news, evidenced by the more than 73,000 page views of rimbeyreview.com over past month, which is more than double the same time last year

Despite the increase, the Rimbey Review is also facing the same business pressures that many others are in our community.

To put it bluntly, the COVID-19-related collapse in ad revenue could put the Rimbey Review’s ability to continue publishing in-paper and online in jeopardy, after telling this town’s stories since 1962.

We do not want to see that happen. Our team wants to continue to serve the community and provide the local news you rely on. In short, we want to continue to inform our friends and neighbours in Rimbey, Buck Lake, Alder Flats Winfield Bentley and everywhere our readers are found.

To achieve this, we are hoping you show your support of local news by making a donation that will go directly to supporting local coverage.

We understand our friends in the business community have been hit hard, meaning advertising dollars are thin. This is why we are turning to our readers to support the Rimbey Review while our business community has the chance to recover.

You can donate to the Rimbey Review by clicking here and making a one-time or monthly donation of your choice.

These donations will allow our journalists continue to serve the community by providing reliable information during a time that has never been more important.

We take great pride in being the paper of record for this community. Our journalists take great pride in the stories, both big and small, they get to share with the community. It is our heartfelt hope we will be able to continue to do so.

If you can, please contribute to the Rimbey Review so that we can continue to share your stories with the community.
