Christmas for Kids
Christmas for Kids strives to provide Christmas assistance
to Laurens County residents in need. Every year, the Laurens County Sheriff's Office provides Christmas gifts to hundreds of children. Through a stringent application and interview process, individuals are assisted on a needs basis. We rely on local businesses and community members to fund this program.
This program exists to aid those in need and has been used to pay for medication, utilities, emergency shelter, and necessities for house fire victims. We are grateful to our community partners who selflessly contribute to this fund and allow us to continue lending a helping hand to those who need it.
This program allows us to place tracking bracelets on elderly or vulnerable individuals in the event that they become separated from family and wander away from their homes. These devices have proven to be invaluable many times and are certainly a comfort to families.
Project SOS is a Senior Outreach Service that is free to senior citizens over 65 living alone in Laurens County. Check-in visits and phone calls to participants are conducted by LCSO staff and volunteers. The main goal of Project SOS is to build relationships with local seniors, forming a connection with them and establishing a plan of action should the need arise.
Fear 2 Freedom
LCSO has partnered with Fear 2 Freedom to provide AfterCare and iCare Kits to victims of sexual abuse. These kits are gifts of hope given to survivors that include appropriately sized clothes and underwear, toiletries, resource cards, stuffed "Freedom" bears, and more items meant to comfort during a traumatic time.
