This year, Clemson Women's Rugby is prioritizing volunteering and giving back to our community. The Clemson area supports us every day, and this is our way of saying thank you. Below is a description of where we volunteer, why we do, and some fun pictures of our players giving back. If you'd like more information on these places, each of their websites are linked!
Helping Hands Thrift Shop
Helping Hands of Clemson Thrift store is located in Central, SC. Helping Hands is a children’s home that provides kids with a safe, comfortable place to live. Our team chose to volunteer at their thrift store because the donations and purchases made at the store are a big part of funding the children’s home.
