What is a Vacation Donation?

Next time you go on vacation, why not consider donating your papers while gone to the NIE program? Simply tell us you want to make a "Vacation Donation" to NIE and we will take care of the rest. Your home delivery will stop, and the money from those papers will be used to support NIE. When you make a Vacation Donation your subscription expiration date will not change. And your money works double time because the Bureau County Republican matches your donation.

Can I make a Vacation Donation even though it is the Summertime?
Absolutely! Money is collected year-round for this program. Through the generosity of our corporate and individual donations, we have been able to make papers available to almost all teachers and schools requesting them. can we count on your help?
