Children's Christmas Party


This annual event for CCC clients' children took place at Trinity Wesleyan Church Saturday, December 6. Each child attending received a Christmas treat bag and a picture with Santa as well as refreshments. Sertoma Club provided the Christmas tree; Girl Scouts provided games; Trinity Wesleyan youth provided face painting and crafts; volunteers helped with setup, distribution and cleanup.

Holiday Programs at CCC

Holiday Baskets Eligible families can pick up their holiday food between November 17 and December 22. Thanks to Central and Clemson Elementary students who filled the bags with holiday food and to the groups and organizations who volunteered to pack the bags. In 2013, we provided over 400 turkeys and food items needed to prepare a Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner.

Holiday Turkeys Again this year we will try to provide each family with a turkey and fixings for a holiday meal. Please consider donating a turkey which can be stored in the freezers at CCC. Bring your turkey donations to the back door of CCC during client hours (Monday-Thursday, 8:30am - 1:30pm). Both BI-LO and Publix will let you leave you purchased turkey at the store to be picked up by CCC.

Secret Santa Program A monetary donation to the Secret Santa Program can provide a child in our community with a gift for Christmas. CCC purchases Toys "R" Us gift cards t0 distribute to participants in the annual children's Christmas party hosted by CCC at 9:30am on Saturday, December 6, at Trinity Wesleyan Church.
