August 15 is Community Voice Editor-in-Chief Bonita Gooch’s birthday.  We’re certain many of you will reach out to wish her happy birthday in many ways, but we  — members of The Community Voice staff — have a great idea.  

We’re asking those of you who support both The Community Voice and Bonita, and appreciate having both around, to make your birthday greeting a financial one.  A contribution – no matter how small  to The Community Voice Go Fund Me Campaign will help Bonita do what she loves most –  continue to keep our community informed.       

For 20 years, Bonita has worked to empower our community through the pages of The Community Voice.  She puts in endless hours, (and we mean endless hours that you would never imagine) to bring you the best product possible.  She covers our community like no other media outlet does, and the paper can be trusted to deliver you the news from the community’s perspective. 

As Bonita loves to stay, “our small staff does a lot with a little; delivering a top notch product with only a bare bones staff.”    Still, she wants to do more, but we’ve stretched our resources about as far as possible.  Doing more will require more — more equipment and more people. 

That’s why we’ve launched our Go Fund Me Campaign.  Many of you have been reading the paper for 20 years, some for just a year.  No matter how long you’ve been with us, other than a few subscribers, you’ve never had to pay a dime.  If you appreciate the paper and Bonita for continuing to make it a source of news for our community, consider donating at the bargain price of $1 or $2 for every year you’ve read the paper. If you really believe in what we offer, consider donating more. 

Send your birthday donation to The Community Voice, 2918 E. Douglas, Wichita, KS  67214 or you can go online and make your contribution at  Our campaign name is “Increase Community Voice Capacity.” 

Thanks for helping us make Bonita’s birthday and extra special one.
