Woman works hard to care for family

  • Follow Metro

A Belvedere woman works part time to care for her three children and also helps out her 83-year-old mother.

“She is not in good health,” she writes, “and I am struggling to make ends meet. I just would like my children to have some kind of Christmas. Can you please help? I am not asking for anything big.”

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.
