Ms. Eddie is an 85-year-old cancer survivor who is full of life. She loves to sing and dance, and is raising two young children ages 4 and 8.

With Social Security being her only source of income, Ms. Eddie struggles daily to make ends meet for her family and is constantly faced with difficult choices when it comes to the most basic necessities. Realizing that Ms. Eddie needed help, one of her friends took her to the Lowcountry Food Bank for assistance.

Ms. Eddie will be able to have healthy food for herself and her adopted children thanks to donations to the Good Cheer Fund, which for the fifth consecutive year received a gift of $10,000 from the Yarborough Applegate Law Firm.

“We are blessed to again have the opportunity to make this donation to this good cause of supporting local charities helping people in our community who need it the most,” said David B. Yarborough Jr.

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.
