Woman needs help after giving birth

Empty Stocking Fund

An Augusta mother suffered complications while in the hospital giving birth to a new daughter. She is not financially able to do much for her child and would appreciate any help in having something for Christmas.


“I thank Jesus that I came through it all,” she wrote. “I can see again ... but I’m not financially able to provide and can barely pay my bills.”

The Augusta Chronicle Empty Stocking Fund has helped such people for 82 years. Last year, the charity raised more than $104,000 that helped children and families across the region.
