Dennis works part time as a custodian at a local church. His meager income allows him to pay his rent and utility bills, but leaves him without much more to purchase food and other essential items.

Thanks to a Good Cheer Fund agency, Dennis will receive a food gift card that will provide him a good hot meal for lunch each day for a couple of weeks.

Your donation can help Dennis and others like him during the holidays by providing assistance with food and other basic needs.

Contributions to The Post and Courier's Good Cheer Fund have helped the less fortunate in the Lowcountry since 1927. The six charitable organizations sharing the funds collected are Carolina Youth Development Center, the Lowcountry Food Bank, the Salvation Army, Star Gospel Mission, the Association for the Blind and Catholic Charities. There are no administrative costs involved and the agencies receive every cent of the money raised.

Send tax-deductible contributions to the Good Cheer Fund, c/o The Post and Courier, 134 Columbus St., Charleston, SC 29403-4800. Donations also may be made in person or online at www.goodcheerfund.com.
