Get involved

We know there are a lot of organizations in our community right now in need of financial and moral support. We featured a story on Intermedia Arts’ financial plight in our Dec. 29–Jan. 11 edition. The nonprofit recently held a town hall meeting that drew more than 100 people interested in making sure Intermedia Arts and other small- and mid-sized arts organizations aren’t casualties of the recession. The community arts organization has recently launched a fundraising campaign that calls on people to donate $10 and encourage 10 other people they know to do the same. More information can be found at www.intermediaarts.org.

We want to be able to connect readers with other opportunities to make a difference in Southwest — whether it’s through a volunteer opportunity or a fundraising campaign for a community group in Southwest.

So if you know of a worthy cause Journal readers should know about, please e-mail Journal editor Sarah McKenzie at [email protected]. We will feature these opportunities in our Focus section.
