Check out what is happening at CCC!

IMG_2003-2 Each week a teacher and several students work in the Pantry at CCC. They are from Pendleton High School and are part of PAES (Practical Assessment Exploration System) program there. PAES is used by the Anderson School District to provide real life skills to special education students and prepare them for life after graduation. At CCC the students and their teacher do various jobs that help provide food and other services to CCC clients. Click here to view an article that appeared in a recent edition of the Anderson Magazine. You will see a photo and quote from Kiarriah Baldwin who along with her teacher and fellow students are regulars at CCC.

Thanks to Kiarriah and all the volunteers from Pendleton High. Kiarriah and her teacher, Kimberly Carter, are pictured on the right.

Food Needs

Clemson Community Care has been experiencing a higher than normal request for food from the clients in our area. We are completely out of several food items and have a very low inventory on many others. Please help us stock our shelves with the following items:

powdered milk
canned vegetables (except green beans - we have a large supply of those)
dry spaghetti noodles

We will really appreciate any and all donations!

Food can be dropped off at the CCC office Monday-Thursday, 8:30am-1:30pm. Check the calendar for days office is closed.
