About The Community Press

The Community Press celebrates all that’s good in the Rio Grande Valley; a platform to share GOOD news and wonderful people. The first issue launched in January 2015 thanks to the support of the Delta Area community. Since then, The Community Press has been released monthly, containing the progress and growth of the Rio Grande Valley community.

The newspaper itself is a 12-page publication organized chronologically, with news articles arranged monthly in the government, business, education, and nonprofit, personal development and ministries. Not only is the paper packed with only positive stories from across the Rio Grande Valley, but it also has space dedicated to our Everyday Heroes.

As you may have noticed, this is not your typical newspaper. Its sole purpose is to share and celebrate positive, uplifting stories that are often overlooked. For many people, understanding the idea behind the newspaper is one thing, but experiencing what a difference it makes to see and read solely positive articles is another.

The whole thing began as a very small idea when Rina Castillo wanted to promote all the good things that were happening in the Delta Area. With the support of one advertiser, she was able to move forward and create her first issue.

“We wanted to shed some light on this world we’re living in and remind people just how much good stuff happens in the world; I honestly think you’ll be pleasantly surprised. Promoting the progress and growth of the Rio Grande Valley is our mission and we would like to thank all RGVians that have cheered us on along the way."
