  • Follow Metro

A Graniteville mother whose husband injured himself on the job is asking for help this holiday to brighten Christmas for her children.

“We have no idea how we are going to be able to give our kids a Christmas at all this year,” she writes. “We very much appreciate you for looking at our situation and thanks if you can help us.”

The Augusta Chronicle Empty Stocking Fund has helped such people for 82 years. Last year, the charity raised more than $104,000 that helped children and families across the region.
