Eric is a 65-year-old man who came to Catholic Charities for prescription assistance. He lives on a fixed income with his wife and four young grandchildren, and frequently struggles to pay his bills each month.

Eric’s wife was diagnosed with cancer earlier this year, which has greatly contributed to their financial hardships. Eric says that the cost of gas to take his wife to her many doctor appointments is currently one of their biggest struggles, as they do not live close to her doctors.

Your donation to Good Cheer will allow Catholic Charities to provide some relief from their financial stress 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 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 goodcheerfund.com.
