Health problems threaten Aiken family’s Christmas

An Augusta woman is seeking assistance this holiday season for her three children.

 

The single mother writes that she is working part-time because of an illness and that her children, ages 10 to 13, are in need of clothing because they are steadily growing.

“I am working just to keep a roof over our heads and food on the table, but that’s still not enough,” she says. “Can someone please hear my prayer and grant help for me and my kids? They have stuck by my side every step of the way.”

The Augusta Chronicle’s Empty Stocking Fund has helped make Christmas better for those who needed it for 86 years. The fund has helped people such as this since 1930. Last year, the charity raised more than $100,000 for children and families across the region.
