A child’s health problems have kept a Beech Island mother from working since February.
“My child has had one surgery and another is coming up,” she writes. “I lost my house and am currently living with my parents. I want to be able to give my other kids a great Christmas. I still want to make them smile and would be grateful for any help I can get.”
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.
