Feinstein Challenge – donate to CCC during March and April!

March and April will be a good time to make a donation to CCC. Again this year, CCC is participating in the Feinstein Challenge as a qualifying agency. All cash, checks and food items donated to the CCC during March and April will be counted as part of the Challenge. Since 1998, the Feinstein Foundation has divided $1 million dollars among qualifying agencies, proportionately to the amount of money the agency raises.

So, the more you donate to CCC in March and April, the more of the $1 million CCC will receive!

For more information about the Feinstein Foundation visit www.feinsteinfoundation.org.

Partner Agency Highlight2014-09-24 11.12.19

ClemsonLIFE is a two year certification program offered to students with intellectual disabilities. ClemsonLIFE incorporates functional academics, independent living, employment, and social/leisure skills in a public university setting with the goal of producing self-sufficient young adults. Students gain employment experience through internships around campus and in the Clemson community, allowing the ClemsonLIFE students to further develop the jobs skills they can use for future employment.

This is CCC’s third year providing jobs for ClemsonLIFE students. The volunteer workers in the pantry loved working with our former students Clint and Shane. This year we are fortunate to have two students, Hope Banks and Jacob Starks (pictured above). Hope is from Mt. Pleasant and is working several days a week in the pantry. Jacob is always here to assist us in the pantry on Monday and Wednesday. He is from Atlanta.

Sarah Kathryn Sorrells, Employment Coordinator/Instructor for Clemson LIFE, says, “Clemson Community Care has been a wonderful partner in assisting our students learn necessary job skills.”
