Out-of-work mom seeks gift for son

  • Follow Metro

Surgery and a job loss have forced a Grovetown woman out of her home.

"I lost my job in April," she writes. "I have no income and am battling to get child support.

"My son (15) is a very smart young man and tries very hard. I am doing this so he will have something nice for Christmas. It will be a blessing to receive something for my son."

The Augusta Chronicle Empty Stocking Fund has helped people such as this for 80 years. Last year, the charity raised more than $118,000 that helped children and families across the region.
