Clemson Letterbox Club

Letter Box ClubAbout

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.
