HospiceCare of the Piedmont will host its 22nd annual children’s grief camp, Camp Celebrate Hope. It will be held May 6-7, 2017 at Camp Fellowship on Lake Greenwood. Camp Celebrate Hope is open to children ages 6-14 who have experienced the death of a family member or a significant person in their lives. The overnight camp will begin early on Saturday morning and end midday on Sunday.
At Camp Celebrate Hope, participants learn about their grief and are encouraged to speak openly about issues of death and their grieving experience within a group of children their own age. Children learn new skills to help them build confidence and hope for the future. Together they create friendships and support that allow them to identify and express their feelings in a safe and caring environment. They also get the chance to participate in fun and organized activities.
There is no charge to attend this camp but space is limited.
The deadline for returning completed camp applications is April 7th, 2017.
For more information or to register, contact Lynn Allen at 864.227.9393.
Interested in becoming a volunteer? HospiceCare of the Piedmont is seeking volunteers.
Volunteers are needed in many areas: patient sitting, working in the Hospice House, running errands, selling and sorting donations, repair work, clerical, fundraising and many other exciting opportunities that provide services to patients and families of the terminally ill. Becoming a hospice volunteer is similar to helping a neighbor in need.

Each year, HospiceCare of the Piedmont provides a special and unique way in which hospice families, as well as community members, pay tribute to their loved one’s memory. This year, we are pleased to offer angel ornaments, by Seattle Porcelain Company. Each angel represents love, joy, peace and hope; a lasting symbol of comfort for all who have experienced grief and loss.
This year’s angel is holding a trumpet. It was designed to celebrate a life that was lost, loved and remembered. Each angel is highlighted with Mother-of-Pearl, kiln fired twice, and individually polished to a fine smooth sheen. They are hand-cast hollow ornaments made of highly translucent porcelain. They glow when a light is placed inside the back of the ornament. They display beautifully on a stand or hanging from a decorative ornament hook. A cream colored bow and ribbon are hand applied and the angel is packaged in a box.
“Angel with Trumpet” is available for $20.00 each. Your loved one’s name and 2016 can be printed on a card that is attached to the angel. To purchase an angel, please download the order form and submit to HospiceCare of the Piedmont along with your check. There is a limited supply of ornaments available. Please place your order now to guarantee availability. Thank you for your support!
We are SOLD OUT of 2016 ornaments. We do have 2015 ornaments left from last year. Please contact our office if you are interested in purchasing one of those, 864.227.9393. Thank you!
