Lexington deputies rounding up socks for kids


GILBERT, S.C. (AP) — Law officers in Lexington County are lending a hand to some sick children this holiday season.

Sheriff James Metts says his deputies are working with Lexington County School District 1 for something called "Socks to Sole." Starting Monday, deputies and district officials are collecting new, unwrapped socks for donation to children who have cancer and are undergoing medical treatment at Palmetto Health Children's Hospital.

The drive runs through Dec. 17. Socks can be dropped off at schools in Gilbert, or people can contact School Resource Officer Matt Rogers at (803) 821-1728 or (803) 231-8563.
