The holiday season is a perfect time to give back to others in meaningful, sustainable and impactful ways. While we might be preoccupied with finals, travel plans, and holiday shopping, try to take time to focus on purpose. Even college students with limited time and resources can help others and make a difference.
If you aren’t sure how to get involved, the following charities and organizations are within the Clemson community. You can choose to either volunteer or donate to their causes.
The holiday season is known for cheerful festivities, memorable traditions, and warm togetherness. But it doesn’t come without stress—a familiar friend to college students who are already balancing hectic demands. One tricky part about this time of year is finances, particularly holiday shopping.

Between part-time jobs, food, textbooks, and other expenses, it can be difficult to set aside money for gifts. Don’t worry if you can’t afford lavish name-brand items, you can still find meaningful presents. The following tips can seriously decrease the cost of your gift list this holiday season!
