Community businesses and organizations share their stories in the April 2, 2020 edition of Call Newspapers. We recognize the businesses, churches, schools, representatives and nonprofit organizations that provide support to our newspapers and help to make our communities strong with great pride and gratitude.

Call Newspapers has been combining local news with total market mail and supplemental newspaper store stack deliveries since 1989. As local businesses and community centers closed to walk-ins, Call Newspapers ceased newspaper store stack deliveries, eliminating 3,000 newspapers from weekly circulation just last week.

Call Newspapers will continue to serve south St. Louis County and surrounding communities from its online daily newspaper edition at The website has served readers since 2002.
