J.S. is 65 years old and living alone on a fixed income. Her monthly earnings barely cover her daily expenses, leaving little room in her budget for anything out of the ordinary.

She recently shared with her caseworker that life is getting a bit more difficult as time progresses. She is feeling frailer and has increased limitations with her mobility. J.S. recently lost her balance and fell while trying to get out of the shower, bruising both her body and her sense of security.

Because of this incident, her doctor wrote her a prescription for a grab bar and special showerhead to make her daily routine safer and easier. The cost of these supplies is minimal but J.S. lacks the financial resources to purchase these necessary items.

Your donation can help a local agency provide safety and peace of mind to this gentle woman.

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 the Lowcountry Food Bank, the Salvation Army, Star Gospel Mission, the Association for the Blind, Coastal Catholic Charities and Carolina Youth Development Center. Every cent of the money 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.
