Clemson Letterbox Club

The Clemson Letterbox Club is sponsored by ClemsonLIFE at Clemson University and sends packages to Youth in foster care in the state of South Carolina.


Children are enrolled for the program by participating local DSS agencies. Each child is sent a colorful parcel of books, math games, stationery and other complementary materials once every month for six months. For many children it's the first time they have had a letter or a parcel through the post and for some, it's the first time they have had books of their own. Letterbox Club parcels are delivered to participating DSS case workers who then post them to the child's home address.

The Benefits

  • Can significantly improve children's reading and numeracy
  • Encourages children and their cares/parents to read and play games together
  • Gives enjoyment to children through owning their own books
  • Supports children over the summer as they move into the next school year
