In Summer 2019, the Times-Tribune newspaper pledged to donate $5 from new subscriptions to KAHOKstrong. People had to simply designate “KAHOKstrong” when subscribing. The promise became real at the November 2019 Board of Education meeting as Times-Tribune editor Steve Rensberry presented a check to KAHOKstong for $2,125.
To build awareness of their expanded coverage into Collinsville CUSD 10 communities, Times-Tribune wanted to demonstrate their commitment to local neighborhoods by launching the subscription drive tied to KAHOKstrong. Because KAHOKstrong provides support to families throughout the CUSD 10 school district, they were the perfect choice to be the beneficiary of the donation.
Times-Tribune leadership and KAHOKstrong sponsors were both impressed to have 425 new subscribers from the promotion. As a result, KAHOKstrong now has additional resources to give back to the community.
