Lexington County sheriff's deputies are rounding up new and used eyeglasses and hearing aids to help people hear and see better.
Deputies are partnering this month with the Cayce-West Columbia Lions Club to collect the items, which will be donated to South Carolina Lions Charitable Services.
Sheriff James Metts says the group's missing is detecting and preventing children and young adults from experiencing problems with their abilities to hear and see.
Metts says Lions Club member and Three Fountains Resident Deputy Stacey Gadson is coordinating the agency's participation in the effort to collect new and used eyeglasses and hearing aids. The deadline for donations is June 30. There are nine different drop-off locations throughout Lexington County.
