In response to the COVID-19 crisis, Merritt Herald is now soliciting donations from readers. This is designed to support our local journalism in a time where our advertisers are unable, due to their own economic constraints.

Merritt Herald has always been a free product and will continue to be free. This is a means for those who can afford to support local media to help ensure those who can’t afford to can get access to trusted local information.

You can make a one-time or a monthly donation of any amount and cancel at any time.
