Clemson organizes efforts to help flood victims

CLEMSON — The Clemson Family wants to help its South Carolina family. Clemson University officials have announced a number of campus initiatives to help those across the state impacted by the recent storms and floods.

Water drop

Donations of sealed drinking water will be accepted from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday and Friday in front of Vickery Hall on Clemson’s main campus. Look for the Clemson Football equipment trailer parked on the street.
On Saturday at the Georgia Tech football game, the Clemson football equipment trailer will be parked at the IPTAY building, (located on the Avenue of Champions) to accept sealed drinking water donations from 9 a.m. until kickoff at 3:30 p.m.
All water donations will be delivered to Harvest Hope Food Bank, which will distribute the water to impacted areas.

Monetary donations

Clemson’s student athletes will accept donations inside the gates of Memorial Stadium prior to the Georgia Tech football game. Gates open at 1:30 p.m., and student athletes will have branded collection buckets.
Additionally, Athletics is committing $1 to the American Red Cross of South Carolina’s relief effort for every bottle of water sold at the Georgia Tech football game.
For those who want to give and cannot attend the Georgia Tech football game, text REDCROSS to 90999 to give $10 to American Red Cross Disaster Relief, which helps people affected by this flood and other disasters. All text-to-donate responses received from 9 a.m. until 9 p.m. on Saturday will be used to assist state of South Carolina efforts.
More opportunities

The Clemson Collegiate 4-H Club has partnered with the American Red Cross of South Carolina to collect items for use by those in shelters in the Upstate area. Bring any donations to the S.C. Farm Bureau CAFLS Tailgate this Saturday at Fike Recreation Center, or drop off items at the Greenville County Clemson Extension Office located at Greenville County Square, 301 University Ridge, Suite 4300 (Items will be accepted at that location until people are able to return to their communities). Items needed include: bottled water, toothbrushes/toothpaste, shampoo, soap, washcloths, pre-wrapped snack food, canned goods, toilet paper, tissues, towels, diapers, pet food for cats/dogs moved to local shelters. Contact Meghan Wood, with any questions.

With Fall Break providing some extra days off, faculty, staff and students who wish to volunteer their services directly to help with clean up or distribution of goods are encouraged to contact the United Way.
Clemson PSA personnel continue to provide assessment and assistance to farmers and homeowners.
