Newspaper contributes 17,000.00 to local charities in 2015

This week Robertson County Publishing has sent statements of donation to nine local charities that totaled more than $17,000.00 in contributions. “It’s something people don’t realize about their local newspapers. Every week we give free advertising to local 503c charities and the amount adds up over a year,” said Publisher Dennis Phillips. “We call these ads “filler ads” which helps the newspaper complete the weekly layouts, but the design contributes to using local charities in these ad positions every week. What we hope to accomplish is public awareness for groups like the Lions Clubs, local libraries and more.”
