FLORENCE, S.C. — Target and the Florence County Sheriff's Office teamed up Friday to help students in three communities be better prepared for cold weather.
Chief Deputy Glen Kirby said the retailer offered the grant and 8,500 agencies applied for it. The sheriff's office was one of three recipients awarded funds — $3,000.
Timmonsville, Johnsonville and Pamplico schools gave a list of students in need to deputies who went shopping Friday and then later delivered the supplies that included coats and shoes, Kirby said.
"We sure hope this helps with the school year," Kirby said.
