Trillium House, the care facility supporting individuals in hospice and those in need of shorter-term, respite guest care, is seeking donations and volunteers to support its reopening later this summer. Trillium House has been closed since the day before Thanksgiving when its building experienced a facility-wide flooding due to the malfunction of its sprinkler system. The facility is expected to reopen around late June.
“We could really use help replacing items that were damaged or lost due to the flood such as linens and paper products,” said Interim Executive Director Alicia Burgess. “While we were able to get in and salvage some of these items, we still need several items not covered by insurance to ensure everyone is comfortable and supported at the level Trillium is known for by residents, guests, and families.”
According to Burgess, the organization has outlined a number of wish list items. Among the new, unused items are blankets, paper towels, sanitation wipes, and coffee items among other products. A list of items needed is available at: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/JPSV17BYOCQX/ref=nav_wishlist_lists_1. Items can be shipped directly to Trillium House from the wish list or delivery can be scheduled by contacting the organization directly through the email below. Trillium House hopes to secure all of the needed items by May 31, 2022.
In addition to seeking donations of items, Trillium House is also looking to recruit new volunteers as well as welcome back its long-standing volunteers. Volunteers are needed to provide Care Support, Welcome & Office Support, Grounds Support, and Special Project Support such as maintenance. Individuals interested in volunteering or looking for more information are encouraged to visit the VolunteerSignup link: https://volunteersignup.org/F849R Trillium House staff will be contacting potential volunteers to discuss the volunteer opportunities.
