Hundreds of Darlington County School District students will be warmer this winter after the Darlington County Parks, Recreation and Tourism Department (DCPRT) donated new and used coats. The donation came about through a community effort, according to Brantley Jett, the Darlington Area Athletic Director for DCPRT. Jett said he noticed some students waiting for buses in the morning without coats. Lee Andrews, the Parks and Recreation Tourism Director, helped spread the word that the department was collecting coats for students. McLeod Health also donated coats. White Swan Cleaners in Darlington then dry-cleaned the 200 coats free of charge.
