good cheer fund

Elijah is 68 years old and living on a fixed disability income. He is homebound.

He was a minister and a health care aide for many years before he became disabled due to severe arthritis and lymphedema, limiting his mobility. He has a walker to get around in his home, but it is old and unstable. And, after several falls, he now tends to stay in his bedroom.

Elijah would love to be able to cook for himself again and regain some independence. By donating to the Good Cheer Fund, you can help Coastal Catholic Charities provide Elijah with a wheelchair and a new walker.

Contributions to The Post and Courier’s Good Cheer Fund have helped the less fortunate in the Lowcountry since 1927. The seven charitable organizations sharing the funds collected are the Lowcountry Food Bank, the Salvation Army, Star Gospel Mission, the Association for the Blind & Visually Impaired, Coastal Catholic Charities, the Carolina Youth Development Center and the Charleston Leadership Foundation. 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, ℅ The Post and Courier, 134 Columbus St., Charleston, SC 29403-4800. Donations also can be made in person or online at
