Thirty-six children in Georgetown County will have a better Christmas thanks to the Sheriff’s Office “Shop with Santa” program.
On Saturday the children — chosen from nine elementary schools in the county — were each given a $125 Walmart gift card.
After enjoying a breakfast of juice and doughnuts, each child was escorted through the store by a deputy or other sheriff’s office staff member to make their purchases.
The children then returned to the sheriff’s office where their presents were wrapped and lunch was provided by Chic-fil-A of Murrells Inlet.
The annual event is sponsored by the Dead Dog Saloon in Murrells Inlet, which raises funds for the program during its 9/11 benefit each September.

The National Transportation Safety Board is recommending lowering the legal blood alcohol content limit for drivers from .08 percent to .05 percent. They say it will decrease the number of traffic fatalities. Do you agree with this idea?
