On September 2nd, more than 75 people including HospiceCare of the Piedmont (HCP) and Hospice Store board, staff, volunteers, customers, Greenwood Chamber of Commerce, and representatives helped celebrate the Re-opening of the Greenwood Hospice Store located at 217 Northcreek Blvd. (across the street from the old location).
The Hospice Store assists HCP in continuing to fulfill its mission of Enhancing life at the end of life. The new building will allow the Hospice Store to operate more efficiently. It will also offer improved convenience for shoppers and donation drop off.
“We also have additional space for our volunteers and community outreach personnel to hold meetings and better serve our community,” said Nancy Corley, HCP Director. The Volunteer Community Center will provide support space for Volunteers, who are so vital to the operation of the store.
The Hospice Store also serves as a way for the community to donate their time, talent and treasures to support HCP patients and families. Donations are accepted at the store Monday – Saturday and after-hour donations can be dropped off at the bins under the covered driveway. Please call 229.9393 to arrange a pick up for large item donations such as furniture.
For more information on volunteering at the Hospice Store, please call Jim Stamey or Susan Harris at 229.9393 or go online at www.hospicepiedmont.org/get-involved/become-a-volunteer to begin the application process.
