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.”



If you have any questions about the CCC program or would like to volunteer, contact the office by phone (864-653-4460) or email (ccc@clemsoncommunitycare.org).

Food Needs

We have had a busy summer at Clemson Community Care. Many of our clients have asked for food assistance because their children have been home for the summer. Because of a greater need for food, our pantry is in need of many food items to replenish our shelves:  

peanut butter
pork and beans
spaghetti sauce
tomato paste and sauce
canned vegetables
canned tomatoes
canned pasta
powdered milk
toilet tissue

We always have a need for baby products:
