Renee and her two boys are survivors of domestic violence. Her husband was the primary breadwinner for the family. After he was arrested and given a restraining order, Renee was left with the harsh reality that she was now the sole provider for her family. As she looked for employment, her bills began to pile up and her savings ran out. She was facing eviction.

Through your donations to the Good Cheer Fund, The Salvation Army will be able to provided food, rental assistance, referrals for counseling and contacts for employment-readiness programs. Without having to fear an eviction, Renee will be given the hope she needs to begin the transition from victim to survivor.

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.
