Lexington County Sheriff’s Department deputies on Wednesday, December 18 donated 326 winter coats, 52 pairs of socks, 32 pairs of gloves, 26 sweater caps, 16 scarves and eight pairs of leggings to Lexington Interfaith Community Services (LICS), which will distribute the garments to children in Lexington County who are in need of assistance. The winter garments were donated to the Sheriff’s Department during the agency’s fourth annual Coats for Kids drive.

Lexington County Sheriff James R.
