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!

The HospiceCare of the Piedmont Board of Directors is pleased to announce plans to build a new building for the operation of the Greenwood Hospice Store. The new building will allow the Hospice Store to operate more efficiently. It will also offer improved convenience for shoppers and donation drop off.
With a gift from a generous donor, the Board was able to purchase 3.5 acres on Northcreek Drive across from the current location.
The new building will be 20,000 square feet and will include a Community Volunteer Center. It will provide support space for Volunteers, who are so vital to the operation of the store. The project is being financed through a low interest loan without increasing current expenses.
The funds raised through sales at the Hospice Store are required to fulfill the mission of the organization. The revenues will allow HospiceCare of the Piedmont to continue to provide high quality hospice services for the community.
The new building is expected to be completed this summer.
Hospice volunteer training has been scheduled for October 7th, 8th and 9th from 9am-3pm. Training will be held at our Hospice office. Please call the Volunteer Department, 227.9393, for an application.
