COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP/WVOC) - Deputies in Richland County are rounding up gifts for some seniors in need this holiday season.

Sheriff Leon Lott says his office has partnered with Home Instead Senior Care to conduct the “Be a Santa to a Senior” project.

You can stop by Lott's headquarters to pick up an ornament with information on possible gifts for a special senior.

Unwrapped gifts can be returned to a number of places including Pink Sorbet, the Chick-fil-A on Bush River Road and seven area Starbucks locations.

Donations will be collected and wrapped on December 12th, then delivered later.
