Thomas is a 60-year-old farmer who owns a small business. As the work is seasonal, Thomas sometimes struggles financially in the months leading up to his harvest. Although he is usually able to save enough to cover his bills during these difficult months, paying for damages from the recent flood has left him concerned about covering his rent and utilities this holiday season.

Through donations to Good Cheer, Catholic Charities would be able to help this hardworking man.

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.
