Clemson Community Foundation Holiday Giving Guide

Dec 1, 2015 | 0 comments

With the celebration of Thanksgiving last week, holiday season is now in full swing. Clemson has many things to be thankful for, not only during this season but also year round. There are several nonprofits in the area that help make Clemson the great community that we all live in. Below is our first annual Holiday Giving Guide, which shows you some ways that you can help give back to these organizations and help make another person’s holiday season just as memorable.

The Art Center of Clemson

You can donate to the Art Center here.

The Art Center is also having its annual Holiday Show and Sale where you can purchase art made by local artists. This will take place from 10am to 5pm, Monday through Friday until December 19th.

Helping Hands

If you would like to donate a material item, Helping hands is looking for donations such as clothing, personal hygiene items, beddings, electronics, books, and children’s items. You can bring these goods to the house or the thrift store.

As a community foundation, we work to provide philanthropy and establish long-term sources of funds for local needs, such as charitable nonprofit organizations in the Clemson area.
