Many thanks to Carol Ward, team leader and liaison. Additional thanks to Heidi Campbell, Karel Keel, Phyllis Phillips, Nancy Lemaster, Dorris Sias, and Michele Sawich-Towler for taking the donated food to Clemson Community Care to be weighed and distributed to the local needy.
We have done a great job and need to continue to feed the people in Oconee, Pickens, and Anderson counties. We need to keep up our good works. For more information, please contact the CCC team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
