Woman needs help after giving birth

Empty Stocking Fund

  • Follow Metro

An Augusta mother suffered complications while in the hospital giving birth to a new daughter. She is not financially able to do much for her child and would appreciate any help in having something for Christmas.

“I thank Jesus that I came through it all,” she wrote. “I can see again ... but I’m not financially able to provide and can barely pay my bills.”

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.

Donations are tax-deductible. To contribute:

• Mail donations to The Augusta Chronicle’s Empty Stocking Fund, P.O. Box 1928, Augusta, GA 30903-1928.

giving to applicates personally

I don't trust just giving to a charity, because they will take things that they may want for themselves. give me an address and i will delivery it personnaly, to include their phone number so that i can contact them from the outside of the home before i come. Me myself i don't anwer the door unless they call before i open the door.
