SUMTER, S.C. — Sumter County Sheriff's Office (SCSO) is holding a barbecue fundraiser for two of its own officers on Saturday, Sept. 25.

For $10, you can choose either barbecue pork or chicken on a plate of rice, macaroni and cheese, green beans, roll and dessert. Delivery is available for orders of 8 or more.
