Since 2007, the annual “Laurel Run/Walk” newspaper sale has been a great way to raise money while spreading the word about the event. This year’s sale will take place Wednesday, July 6. The Post-Journal and the Observer will publish the special edition, and volunteers will sell the papers between 6:00 and 10:00 a.m. at the following locations:
- Drive-thru lanes of Tim Hortons in Cassadaga, Dunkirk, Fredonia, Gowanda, Irving, Jamestown, and Lakewood
- Downtown Silver Creek
- Downtown Fredonia
- Downtown Dunkirk
We express our gratitude to The Post-Journal and Observer for printing the special edition; the volunteers for waking up early and hitting the streets to sell the papers; and the people who buy a Laurel Run/Walk edition. While most folks who buy a paper know about the sale ahead of time, some people only find out about it that day – they ask what the volunteers are doing, learn that we’re raising money to support people with disabilities, and decide to make a contribution.
We also extend our appreciation to the businesses who allow us to sell papers at their locations each year. We are particularly indebted to the Kron family (owners of the Tim Hortons cafes in Cassadaga, Dunkirk and Fredonia) and the Tarana family (owners of the Tim Hortons locations in Jamestown and Lakewood) for allowing us to sell papers to their customers.
If you’re interested in helping us sell newspapers (anytime between 6:00 and 10:00 a.m.), complete the form below and someone will get in touch with you.
