Mom simply wants good Christmas for her children

Latonya is the mother of five, three girls and two boys, all under the age of 12. She works part-time as a housekeeper in a hotel to support her children, and is doing so on her own.

She wants to provide a merry Christmas for her children but doesn't see how that will be possible without the help of a Good Cheer Fund agency. Thanks to the generosity of the Lowcountry, she hopes to have presents for the children and a food gift card to put something special on the table during the holidays.

Your donation can help give her children a merrier Christmas.

Contributions to The Post and Courier's Good Cheer Fund have provided more cheerful holidays for the less fortunate since 1927. The six charitable organizations sharing the funds collected are the Association for the Blind, Catholic Charities, Carolina Youth Development Center, the Lowcountry Food Bank, the Salvation Army and Star Gospel Mission. The charities receive every cent of the money, 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, S.C., 29403-4800.
