Empty Stocking Fund: Cancer patient lost home, car

Empty Stocking Fund

A Warren County, Ga., woman who found out she had cancer in March and was out of work for several months, also lost her home and car. She said she would welcome some help this holiday.


“I am thankful that God has blessed me to get another car,” she writes. “I just went back to work, but they have cut our hours to 32 and 36. I really do thank you, and may God bless you all.”

The Augusta Chronicle Empty Stocking Fund has helped people such as this for 81 years. Last year, the charity raised more than $115,000 that helped children and families across the region.
