Empty Stocking Fund benefits many

The Augusta Chronicle's Empty Stocking Fund helped 1,359 families throughout the area this holiday season.

Contributions totaled $95,124.43, which is $2,081.60 less than in 2000.

"I think it is just phenomenal the way this community pulled together with such generosity," said Julian Miller, the general manager of The Chronicle. "To come within $2,000 of matching last year in what has been a difficult time for many shows our spirit to help others."

The Empty Stocking Fund received 2,408 applications in 2001. The following is the final list of contributors to the 2001 Empty Stocking Fund:
