Help #fight4Literacy by teaming up with Clemson University Men's Basketball and "Coaching for Literacy" the week of February 21-27, 2021.

Less than half of Pickens County 3rd graders are reading at their grade level. When a child cannot read at grade level by the 3rd grade, it has been proven that it is nearly impossible for them to catch up. There is also a good chance they will not graduate on time or be able to find a good job.

Why not click on the online giving link: and make a donation. It is really easy, you will see a green "Pledge Now" button, just click on it and follow the instructions. If you have any questions just contact Jennifer Shurley at United Way of Pickens County.

Help us bring a smile to the children in care of Pickens County DSS by shopping on and selecting Friends of Pickens County Guardian ad Litem as your charity. It costs you nothing but benefits the children.

2020 was a very challenging year for everyone. In the midst of all the challenges the Friends have been able to continue to support the children in care because of your response to our request for donations. We are hopeful that we will be able to plan our annual HEART and SOLE back to school shopping event for the children in care this summer. We are also going to be planning other fundraising activities during the spring and fall of 2021.
