You all have done a great job over the years. I receive my most important local news from your paper.
- Richard Younge, Lithonia
When you look at the world today and you see all the corporate news papers, it is so very refreshing to see our own community caring enough to share the news with us. Even though all of our lives are busy and new things seem to pop up daily to our to-do-list one thing remains the same...CrossRoadNews. I am tired of seeing local news stations talk about all the negative that goes on and not highlight the positive. Thank you for being a joy to read and for keeping us all informed of our community and the world. Kudos to you all for spotlighting our youth and the wonderful things that they are doing and/or trying to do.

My roots are in Atlanta and i plan on returning. I am fortunate and sincerely enjoy keeping abreast with all of the new developments, the entertainment and so on that the CrossRoads. keep me up-to-date with in Atlanta. Please keep me on the list. I met the owner of CrossRoads News 3 years ago and she was going to print my poem for a fraction of the price. just so I would be able to share with the community. From then on I was a CrossRoad patron!

I think CrossRoads provides an anchor to our community. They are a primary source for community information. They stand ready to cover information on relevant topics that matter most and impact our community. I am honored to have worked with Jennifer and the Crossroads family since 1998 and look forward to many years ahead.
Thanks for all you do.
- Kim Schofield, Decatur
I love your eNews! Keep it coming, please. Truly, the most important news is that which is closest to home. Having reliable, professional journalists dedicated to reporting local news is more essential than most people recognize. I could go off here on the essential nature of a free press for a democracy to exist ... instead, I'll just say thanks for being a part of all of that!

I love reading the Crossroads, It is very informative, and I love all the advertisers. The Crossroads helped me find my Mom a place to live when she moved to Atlanta. I make it a point to grab one every Monday Morning when I walk in the office on my way to my desk. Thank you for keeping me up to date.

CrossRoadsNews is my neighborhood paper and I count on it to keep it to keep me informed about issues close to home.

CrossroadsNews is a critical information center for our community. We need to have an annual Supporter Donation of $10 to $20 to show our gratitude for your free paper at a minimum for the people who do not buy a subscription.
We, as a community, must learn to support our local media outlets financially because nothing is free. This will provide the foundation to make sure CrossroadsNews has the basic financial support to keep its doors open plus make a profit.
We need to show our appreciation for the many innovative ways Crossroads Newspaper has educated our community such as the Health and Wellness Expo at Stone Crest Mall.
We need to make sure our local media have a foundation of support to ensure they do not have to depend on advertisement.
10,000 x $10 = $100,000
10,000 x $20 = $200,000
20,000 x $10 = $200,000
20,000 x $20 = $400,000
We can start our campaign with a goal of 5,000 for the first year. This will be a four year goal.
