Advertising-supported local news outlets in the D.C. area and across the country are taking a big hit while the COVID-19 pandemic unfolds.

As the crisis deepens, Reston Now is in a tough spot. Starting today we’re asking you — our readers — to help us keep our coverage going over the next several months.

Since we launched in 2013, we’ve always prided ourselves in providing free content to our community and we’ve never asked readers to support our operations. But during these unprecedented times, we need your help.

If you would like to continue reading Reston Now and you’re able to give us a few bucks a month, we would greatly appreciate you contributing to our coverage via PayPal or joining our Patreon.

We have two monthly options: $6 and $10. Every donation will help us keep our news operation going. If you’d like to give more, we would prefer you save the big bucks for local nonprofits like Cornerstones or the COVID-19 Response Fund for Northern Virginia.

This is a temporary measure and we will let you know when the coast is clear and we can resume being 100% advertising-supported. Thank you for your readership and, for those who are able to contribute, your support.

Calling all local photographers: Reston Now is looking for your photos of Reston, Herndon and Great Falls.

Whether you’re a photography pro or just love snapping pictures with your smartphone, we are always looking to include seasonal photos in our Morning Notes on weekdays or reshare pictures on our social media accounts.

As we also followed the advice of public health experts, we’re especially interested to see your photos of social distancing (or lack thereof) in the area.

To send us your photos, email us at [email protected], tag us in your photo on social media or join our Reston Now Flickr page.

You will always receive credit for the photo — either with your username or actual name.

Thank you to photographers who have already sent us photos.

Have thoughts about Reston Now’s coverage of Reston, Herndon and Great Falls? Want to share your opinions about local issues?

Reston Now welcomes letters to the editors and op-eds of specific interest to the Reston, Herndon and Great Falls community.

The key difference is that an op-ed can be an opinion piece about a local issue, while a letter to the editor responds directly to a Reston Now story.

Please email it to [email protected] You are also welcome to contact us with your idea for feedback before submitting it.

While there is no word limit, we suggest under 1,000 words. Contributions may be edited for length, content and style/grammar.

Reston Now does not publish op-eds relating to a specific candidate running for political office — either from the candidate’s team or opponents.

Thank you to everyone who has submitted op-eds and letters to the editor already.
