Display Advertising

The Heights Observer is published as a community building project by non-profit FutureHeights.

Each issue is written and edited by members of the community on a volunteer basis. All proceeds are returned to the community in the form of programming by FutureHeights.

So advertising is not only good for your business, its a good deed.
