Support the alley on Give to the Max Day! Thursday November 18th.

The Alley is the community newspaper of the Phillips Community in Minneapolis. We serve more than 20,000 residents, and many businesses, agencies, schools, and visitors to Phillips. Now in our 45th year of publication, we continue to be a forum of ideas, information, and announcements, all directed at the variety of individuals and groups who are part of this neighborhood. The Alley is the only paper to concentrate exclusively on the Phillips Community. This allows us to cover in-depth the issues and stories that matter to the people who live here. The Alley is a non-profit organization; our mission is to provide a place where voices that are often ignored by the mainstream media can be heard. The Alley counters the often negative portrayal of our community with the narrative of its residents that offer a more balanced documentation of the Phillips community. We encourage community involvement in all aspects of creating the paper. We want the voices of Phillips to be heard. If you are interested in writing for The Alley, or otherwise becoming involved in this grassroots, community-led and community-directed organization, please contact us at copydesk@alleynews.org.

The Alley”'s Annual Fundraising event persevered through record snowfall!

The record-setting snowfall the evening of The Alley Newspaper”'s Annual Meeting and Fundraising Auction understandably limited attendance and income for this important event. Bravo and thanks to the three dozen who were able to navigate the streets and snowdrifts. Thank you also to the individuals and businesses whose donations were auctioned. The Alley does need additional financial contributions donations to accomplish our work this New Year. In spite of enormous snow drifts and narrowed streets, the US mail is still getting delivered remarkably well. Please consider using the mail and making a tax deductible contribution to Alley Communications, the community-owned nonprofit that produces The Alley Newspaper. Assist The Alley in 2011 to continue to ENGAGE and INFORM about life in the neighborhoods of Phillips Community and also reaching into the Backyards of Central, Powderhorn Park, and Corcoran Neighborhoods. Every increment of $5 is appreciated. Give whatever amount you can afford. Address to: Alley Communications P.O.
