Empty Stocking Fund



Out of a job, an Augusta father looks for a way to make the holidays special for his family.

This father was recently in a car accident and has undergone surgery. He worries because he does not know when he'll be able to return to work. His wife is working but is unable to support the family with three children.

"I am in great need of some assistance until I am financially able to support my family," he writes. "Our family would greatly appreciate assistance this Christmas."

Through contributions to the Empty Stocking Fund, the family will receive gift certificates to local Kroger stores for food and Kmart stores for other necessities.

Contributions can be sent to Empty Stocking Fund, P.O. Box 1928, Augusta, GA 30903-1928. Or visit augustachronicle.com/emptystocking to make donations online to the Empty Stocking Fund.
