ANDERSON CO., S.C. (WSPA) – Anderson County senior Simon Wilson balances two jobs, school work, and now a program to thank officers.
Wilson, who is thinking of pursuing a career in law enforcement, wanted a way to show Upstate officers his appreciation of their service.
In December Wilson launched Lunch for LEOs, which stands for Law Enforcement Officer. Wilson takes money from his paychecks and family members and uses it to buy gift cards.
Since December Wilson has handed out 123 gift cards to officers that he sees around town. Wilson hopes to one day expand the program to other Upstate counties.
