Donations can help widow with mental illness

  • Posted: Saturday, December 15, 2012 12:17 a.m.

Angela is a middle-aged widow who suffers from mental illness. Her husband of many years used to care for her and managed the household. Since his death, however, she has been living alone and was taken advantage of by a family member who depleted her finances.

To help

To donate to the Good Cheer Fund, go to goodcheerfund.com. For more stories, go to postand courier.com/goodcheer.

A neighbor soon realized that Angela did not have money to provide for even her most basic needs. Thanks to support from her surrounding community, Angela has reached out to a local agency that benefits from the Good Cheer Fund to help provide her with food and other necessities.

Your donation can help assure that Angela and others like her don’t go hungry during this holiday season.

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, Lowcountry Food Bank, Salvation Army, Star Gospel Mission, Association for the Blind and Coastal Catholic Charities. Every cent of the money raised goes directly to the agencies as there are no administrative costs involved.

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.
