CASH LLC offers students an opportunity to serve the local community during their time at Clemson. Students engage in service projects, explore public service career options and investigate social problems while becoming invested in the Clemson area community and developing friendships with other civic-minded students.

CASH members volunteer in a variety of settings in the local community — including the local Animal Rescue Fund shelter, Homeworks, ReWiGo and  assisted living homes, Alterra Sterling House and Six Mile. In addition, CASH hosts various drives with CleanStart, the Clemson Childhood Development Center and Helping Hands, while also participating in the annual Relay for Life event and sponsoring dances for the ClemsonLIFE program.

Student Perspective

“CASH has allowed me to discover my passion for helping others in a new, more intense light by providing opportunities to explore various types of service and to engage in meaningful community relationships.”
– Izzy Ward

“CASH helped me discover my passion for volunteering through hands-on projects that directly impact the community! CASH has helped me gain valuable experience working with community which I can talk about in my classes and show a new perspective. From being in CASH I learned that by helping others, you are also helping yourself and gaining valuable networks that become you home away from home.”

-Natalie Alvarez, Sophomore student, CASH Treasurer

“If I didn’t join CASH freshman year, my college experience wouldn’t have been nearly as rewarding and enjoyable. CASH created a community of service-oriented students and introduced me to some of the best people at Clemson. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the variety of service projects over my four years and the CASH family created.”

– Meghan McDevitt, Senior student, President 2015-2016
