Take action now: support local journalism

Dear reader,

We know that many of our friends and neighbors are hurting right now. And for some, a subscription or donation to the Southeast Missourian just isn't an option. We understand that. Please know that we will continue our mission to help our communities thrive without extra support for as long as we can, making vital health news free.

But for those who are able, we need you. Declining ad revenue, exacerbated by the coronavirus, is an existential challenge to local journalism.

Our future to serve Cape Girardeau, Jackson, Scott City and our region depends on support from people like you.

Please subscribe  or make a donation now. By doing so, you help us continue our mission, providing vital news to our community and connecting it in positive ways. 97% of all donated funds will go directly to news operations to ensure quality local journalism such as the important articles you’re reading about COVID-19.

Thank you for reading. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for supporting.
