Your holiday contributions could give Joe a ride to his new job

Joe lives at a local men's shelter in Charleston. He recently got a good construction job in Goose Creek but doesn't have a car to get to work.

The bus is his best option at this point, but even that is more than he can afford.

Your donation will enable a Good Cheer Fund agency to help Joe get back and forth to work by purchasing a 31-day bus pass for him until he is able to afford transportation himself.

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

Send tax-deductible contributions 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.
