Moncks Corner mom organizes flip flop drive for military hopsital

Brenda Frye of Moncks Corner recently heard an unusual request from her daughter, Georgina Walton-Floyd, who works at a military hospital in Afghanistan: Georgina wanted flip flops.

The Air Force medic had noted that while injured soldiers get care packages they never contain flip flops for the troops to wear and shower in, nor did the hospital have any to give.

And so Georgina asked that her mom could organize an event that would have people donate flip flops. Operation Flip Flops was born.
