A Martinez mother has struggled since her daughter’s father died in August.
“I had to stop working because she has medical issues and I home-school her,” she writes. “I just want to see a smile Christmas morning. … For any help I will be grateful.”
The Augusta Chronicle Empty Stocking Fund has helped people such as this for 82 years. Last year, the charity raised more than $104,000 that helped children and families across the region.
