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.

Turkey Call!

Again this year, we will do our best to provide each eligible family with a turkey and fixings for a holiday meal. Our freezers are ready and many grocery stores are running specials. When you are doing your grocery shopping, please pick up an extra turkey to share with CCC clients.  Your turkey can be delivered to the back door entrance of CCC during our client hours, Monday-Thursday, 8:30am.-1:30pm. Or  –  if you shop at either BI-LO or Publix in Clemson, you can leave your purchased turkey at the store. CCC workers will be picking up the donated turkeys daily.

Please keep in mind that holiday food distribution starts on November 16, and thank you in advance for your generosity!


Due to rain on Sunday, October 4, the Walk was held at First Baptist’s indoor track. Thanks to all who came out to walk or gave donations to our annual CROP Walk.

Canned and non-perishable items needed

We have about a one month’s supply of food on hand. While donations increase during the holidays, so do the needs of our clients. Our clients truly appreciate the holiday food basket program, but also continue to need basic food staple items during the holidays. Additionally, children are out of school for the holiday break, so households experience increased needs during that time. When you go to the grocery store to purchase a turkey, an extra bag of stuffing, or can of cranberry sauce for our holiday food drive, please consider purchasing much-needed staple items as well.

Thank you so much for helping to make the holidays a little bit easier for our clients and their families.

In the right column is a list of products we need for holiday food baskets and a list of the staple items we always need.

Thanks to our donors and volunteers!

IMG_0459 To all of you who give, whether of your time, money, or from your pantry, know that you are helping to make a difficult time in someone’s life a little bit easier, and for that we thank you.
