Our goal is to continue to provide coverage of news and events in McKeesport, Duquesne, North Versailles Twp., White Oak and the surrounding area. We'd even like to grow, but first, we need to get back to full strength.

We don't ask for money very often. If you can help us, we would very much appreciate a donation this year.

We are an IRS-registered 501(C)(3) charity, which means your donation may be tax-deductible.

If you are financially able, and would like to make a gift, please consider doing so.

Donations may be made by check or money order to:

Tube City Community Media Inc.
P.O. Box 94
McKeesport PA 15134

Or via PayPal at: http://www.tubecityonline.com/contact/

We could not keep these websites free without support from several community organizations, including:

  • G.C. Murphy Co. Foundation
  • E.R. Crawford Estate Trust Fund
  • The McKeesport Community Fund
  • Finney Funeral Homes
  • Jaycox-Jaworski Funeral Home
  • Legion Arms
  • Strifflers’ Family Funeral Homes
  • Willig Funeral Home

There also have been many people who have sent donations, behind the scenes, and we are grateful.

No one has a "full-time job" working for Tube City Community Media. Most of us are volunteers, including our treasurer, Alycia Bencloski, and secretary, Jennifer Sopko, who donate their time to keep us in business.

We operate on an annual budget of about $25,000, most of which goes to pay for rent, overhead and expenses, including paying our contributors.

We hope you’re safe and healthy, and that we can see you in person in 2022. Have a very happy New Year!
