Again this year, the Good Cheer Fund has received a generous gift of $5,000 from the Employee Advised Fund of the Daniel Island Company.

The Employee Advised Fund is an employee charitable contribution program funded through voluntary payroll deductions. The fund is administered by the Daniel Island Community Foundation. Employees of the Daniel Island Company, Daniel Island Real Estate, Daniel Island Club and the Daniel Island Property Owners Association annually elect to contribute a portion of each paycheck to be deposited into the fund. The Daniel Island Company matches employee contributions dollar for dollar, and an employee advisory committee guides decisions on contributions throughout the year.

The Post and Courier’s Good Cheer Fund is honored to have been one of several local entities selected this year because it addresses causes identified by Daniel Island employees and their fund’s advisory committee as priority needs within our community.

This generous donation will go a long way toward helping Lowcountry residents such as Jennifer. She was involved in a very serious car accident and missed three days of work from her waitressing job. She was not paid for those days and also had a substantial car-repair bill.

A Good Cheer Fund agency helped Jennifer with her electric bill and rental assistance, and our readers’ contributions will enable her to provide a few Christmas gifts under the tree for her four children.

Donations 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.
