Welcome to Clemson Community Care Online

If you are new to Clemson Community Care we invite you to learn more about our organization through this website and to visit our offices located in Clemson. We welcome your participation whether it be through seeking our services, volunteering your service or making a donation.


Holiday Programs Begin

Holiday Baskets

Our holiday baskets, filled with holiday meal items, will be distributed beginning Monday, November 13, and continue through December 21. We will have extended hours and an additional interviewer to handle the increased number of people who visit CCC requesting holiday food. We are grateful to Central and Clemson Elementary Schools for collecting special holiday food items in their October food drives.

Holiday Turkeys

Again this year, we plan to include a turkey with the holiday food items given to our clients. If you would like to help keep the freezers stocked with turkeys, please pick one up for a neighbor when you shop. Turkeys can be delivered to the back door of CCC Monday-Thursday 8:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Both BI-LO and Publix of Clemson will allow you to leave the turkey after purchase to be picked up daily by CCC volunteers. Please keep in mind that distribution begins on November 13. Thank you in advance for your generosity for our holiday baskets and turkeys!

Secret Santa Program

CCC will host our annual Christmas party for our client family children on Saturday, December 2, 9:30am until noon at Trinity Wesleyan Church. Participating families will receive a Toys R Us gift card to purchase gifts for each child in their family. The gift cards will be distributed to the parents at the party and each child will receive a treat bag and have their picture taken with Santa. Refreshments, crafts and games will also be part of the fun! All attending should bring social security cards for all family members and proof of income for the previous 30 days.

Holiday time at CCC is always a busy time and volunteers are needed and welcome. Contact the CCC office for more information about how you can help and/or click here to make a donation. See the sidebar for pantry items needed now.
