CU students fight hunger
Clemson students starting Sunday are hoping that shoppers will think twice about the problem of hunger in their backyard. Members of a Clemson class are hosting a food drive at the Central Wal-Mart Sunday and Thursday. A sophomore from Pickens, Andrew Hendricks, said he and his fellow students will provide a list of items to buy for the benefit of Clemson Community Care. Hendricks is part of a class that focuses on advocacy and admits he was surprised to learn how serious hunger is in both Clemson and Pickens County. He learned that one in 17 Pickens County students go home on Friday and do not get adequate nutrition until they return to school on Monday.
