For the fifth consecutive year, Yarborough Applegate has gifted $10,000 to The Post & Courier’s Good Cheer Fund.
Since 1927, The Post and Courier has organized this annual fundraiser aimed at helping Lowcountry families who are in need through the holiday season. The donations received are distributed to local agencies such as the Association for the Blind & Visually Impaired (ABVI), Carolina Youth Development Center, Catholic Charities, Lowcountry Food Bank, Salvation Army, and Star Gospel Mission.
Donations are typically accepted following Thanksgiving and through Christmas Day. Every cent of the money raised goes directly to the charities. Since its inception, the fund has raised more than $7.2 million.
“We are blessed to again have the opportunity to make this donation to this good cause of supporting local charities helping people in our community who need it the most,” said David B. Yarborough Jr.
The holidays can be a particularly stressful time for families in need. The Good Cheer fund aims to help alleviate this stress and make the holiday season a little brighter for the less fortunate. The Post & Courier has been sharing the stories of some of the lives touched by this charity daily throughout the holiday season. This year, they report that the Good Cheer Fund has already worked to help a blind woman acquire transportation to purchase groceries, helped a mother of eight afford to buy her children Christmas presents and has impacted the lives of many who are still dealing with the effects of flood damage from earlier this year.
Yarborough Applegate would like to encourage those who wish to donate or learn more about the Fund to visit their website here.
