CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - Holiday food baskets are to be distributed to hundreds of families in seven counties in the South Carolina Lowcountry and Midlands.

Both employees and those who are retired from South Carolina Electric & Gas Co. are filling the baskets in Charleston on Tuesday and then spreading out across the Lowcountry to distribute the holiday cheer.

In all, 275 baskets are being distributed to needy families in Charleston, Dorchester, and Colleton counties as well as in Beaufort, Jasper, Orangeburg and Hampton counties.

Families with children who are younger than 14 are also receiving toys along with the food baskets.
