Gladys is an 82-year-old widow living on a fixed income. Between bills and everyday expenses, she has a hard time making ends meet.

She often has to make choices between buying food and getting her medicine. When that happens, Gladys goes to a Good Cheer Fund agency for food assistance. If it were not for that agency, she says she doesn’t know how she would make it through each month.

Your donation to the Good Cheer Fund can help make sure Gladys and others like her have warm, nutritious meals throughout this season.

The six charitable organizations sharing the funds collected are the Carolina Youth Development Center, Lowcountry Food Bank, Salvation Army, Star Gospel Mission, Association for the Blind and Catholic Charities. There are no administrative costs involved, and the agencies receive every cent of the money raised.

Send tax-deductible donations to the Good Cheer Fund, c/o The Post and Courier, 134 Columbus St., Charleston, SC 29403-4800. Donations also may be made in person or online at www.goodcheerfund.com.
