The Good Cheer Fund Donates to Lowcountry Neighbors in Need

Spreading Joy Since 1927

The Lowcountry rallied again this year to help those in greatest need by donating $417,908.31 to the Good Cheer Fund. Those funds will be distributed to The Lowcountry Food Bank, Salvation Army, Star Gospel Mission, Association for the Blind, Catholic Charities, Carolina Youth Development Center, and Charleston Leadership Foundation.

Established in 1927, the Good Cheer Fund has raised a total of $11,018,981.14 since its inception. Every year, the campaign launches the Sunday after Thanksgiving and ends Christmas Day, with the final listing published on December 31. Principal funding comes from individuals and local businesses that respond to newspaper articles written during the holiday season. The Good Cheer fund represents all that is good, charitable, and generous in the Lowcountry. 

This year, donations ranged from a few dollars to $35,000 from the employees at Blackbaud. Notably, not only did businesses lend their generous support, but many of their clients made donations in their honor, or in honor of their employees. Here are just a few examples:

  • In honor of Charleston Financial Advisors, LLC From Grateful Clients
  • In honor of Elvita at Elvita’s Day Spa on Coleman Blvd.
  • In honor of Rita at Bernice’s Salon on King St.

Of course, individuals and community organizations were represented as well, such as:

  • Bill and Cheryl Clair donated over Thanksgiving for their nine beautiful grandchildren
  • The Society for the preservation of Spirituals
  • The Village Birthday Group in McClellanville
  • The Mash Supper Club

Contributions can be made in a variety of ways from honoring a loved one, in memory of someone special, in lieu of Christmas Cards, or anonymously. For more information, visit

The Post and Courier Launches Redesigned Print Edition

After listening and responding to the ever-changing media needs of our readers, we’ve redesigned the Post and Courier to put our audience first.

In 2020, the Post and Courier announced a significant investment in equipment and the future of media in South Carolina with the purchase of a 2008 Goss Magnum Single Width Press. That investment is now coming to fruition, as the presses became fully operational on Sunday, December 18, 2022

“This is truly a historical moment for media in South Carolina,” said Pamela J Browning, President and Publisher, Newspaper Division. “We remain committed to continuously developing our capabilities and investing in quality journalism. The new presses position us to continue printing a quality newspaper well into the future with all the content our readers enjoy in a more vibrant and engaging design.”
