Tigers hoping to be a blessing to others

Clemson Football’s PAWJourney Program partnered up with the Golden Harvest Food Bank to host its inaugural food drive to help families in need in the Clemson area, while supplying goody bags for children.

This was part of the Tigers’ annual community service project which head coach Dabo Swinney started in 2008 when he took over the program as the interim head coach at the time. During Clemson’s bye week, the Tigers’ coach always has his team participate in a community project to show them there is more happening in this world than just playing football.

Swinney, like his players, jumped in and got his hands dirty too as he helped pack bags at the produce station.

“We are helping out 864 children in both the Pickens and the Oconee County areas,” Clemson kicker Greg Huegel said on Tuesday. “Those are kids that do not have enough food to eat on the weekends, whose parents are single-parent households who struggle on the weekends.

“We are blessed so we are trying to be a blessing for other people, too.”
