For the seventh consecutive year, donations topped the $100,000 mark, with $100,721.46 collected by Christmas Eve.
For 81 years The Chronicle has been glad to offer a way to help others in the true spirit of this season.
There is still time to offer your tax-deductible donations before the year ends. Contributions will also be accepted through the middle of January, although the deadline to submit an application for help has passed.
