How You Can Support

HospiceCare of the Piedmont Donations

Whether your donation to HospiceCare is a gift of money, time or talent, your gift is a gift of caring. The generosity and compassion of our community make it possible for HospiceCare to continue to meet the needs of our patients and their loved one's.

Many people ask what they can do to insure that HospiceCare will always be available to those who need it. HospiceCare's mission is to serve those in our community with a terminal illness and those who are grieving, regardless of their ability to pay. HospiceCare relies heavily on charitable donations to carry out our mission and to develop new programs to meet the needs of the community.

Dedicate a Brick

HospiceCare of the Piedmont invites you to support the new Hospice House by purchasing a commemorative brick. When you designate a brick in The Courtyard of the Hospice House, you create a timeless tribute. Your purchase of a brick not only assures that your loved one will have an enduring memorial, but also confirms your contribution in making the Hospice House a reality.

A commemorative brick is an ideal way to leave your mark, honor someone, or memorialize a loved one. Each brick can be engraved with your name or the name of a friend or family member. Your gift will help support the Hospice House which provides critically-needed services for all residents of our greater community. This facility enables people to experience this most difficult time in their lives with an added level of invaluable support. We invite you to join us in this effort to ensure that, in the greatest time of need, our citizens will be allowed every comfort possible. To purchase a brick, download our brochure/order form, order on-line, or call to request a form to be mailed to you, 864.227.9393.
