Margaret is blind and completely dependent on public transportation. However, recent rate increases have made it very difficult for her to afford. Margaret needs public transportation to get to her doctors’ appointments and to get to the grocery store, as the streets are not always easy or safe to navigate without vision.

Your donations will allow Margaret to afford transportation so that when she gets to the grocery or drug store she still has some money to spend on food and medicine.

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 can be made in person or online at www.goodcheerfund.com.
