Impact Unlimited

Due to current COVID-19 restrictions we are not accepting meals at this time. Please continue to check back for updates.

Impact Unlimited is Trellis Supportive Care’s teen volunteer program. Teens in this program can participate in a number of tasks ranging from baking to gardening to providing companionship to patients. The specific areas for teen volunteers are divided into three groups.

Kate B. Reynolds Hospice Home
101 Hospice Lane Winston-Salem, NC 27103 

Event date and time: Ongoing
Address of event:  To be done at home
Drop Off location:  Kate B. Reynolds Hospice Home - Main Entrance, Monday – Friday 8:00 – 5:00.
Attention: to Kerri Harville.
Are there any age restrictions on volunteers? No
Brief description of what the volunteers will be expected to do:

Create flat, 6x6 approximate size door decorations that have a string (suggestions: yarn, threaded rope or use beads threaded on wire).   All patient doors have a hook on them. They must lay flat against door and not be heavy.  Please no glitter however, glitter pens are fine.  Make them cheery and seasonal decorations. No religious sayings, please. We give 10 service hours for 40 decorations.

For additional information please contact volunteer coordinator Kerri Harville.

  1. Cookie & Craft Club meets one Saturday every other month during the school year and every Friday during the summer. Volunteers bake cookies and make crafts to brighten hospice patients’ days. The Cookie & Craft Club is also open to middle school students. Registration is required and class size is limited.
  2. Teen Event Volunteers assist in helping the agency host fundraising and education events, such as the Hospice Hope Run and golf tournaments.
  3. Teen Garden Volunteers work in partnership with Trellis Supportive Care’s gardener to keep the Forsyth County campus watered and beautiful.

Need Service Hours?

Trellis Supportive Care, North Carolina's original hospice and palliative care provider, awards service hours to teens that complete an eligible activity. The possibilities are endless, but see the list below for some examples of what our teens are doing!
