Ms. Jones is a single mother of one who recently lost her job. As a result of losing her job, she also lost her apartment and had to move in with a friend.

Her son is in need of braces for his legs, is mute and has several additional medical problems. Neither she nor her son has medical insurance, meaning she has to pay out of pocket for all of his medical expenses.

Through the assistance of the Good Cheer Fund, the Charleston Youth Development Center would be able to help Ms. Jones provide her son with a good Christmas.

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.
