Phillip is a 73-year-old Vietnam veteran who lives alone in an old, rundown home in Cottageville. His home is made out of concrete blocks and has poor insulation. As a result, his heating bills are quite high, even though he sets the thermostat at 65 degrees and wears a sweater and jacket while in his home most of the time.

Phillip came to the Star Gospel Mission because he is two months behind in paying his electric bill and his gas and electricity are about to be turned off.

The Good Cheer Fund will enable Star Gospel Mission to pay Phillip’s entire monthly bill so that he will not have to go without heat for the next month.

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.
