Sew a Memory Bear. Create a Forever Friend.

VITAS Healthcare(r) is looking for people who love to sew, and who are able to share their skills with hospice patients and families.

A Memory Bear, sewn by a volunteer with compassion and love, is a forever friend who can ease a hurting heart after the death of a VITAS hospice patient.

Sewn from a favorite pair of jeans, a pullover top, dress, bathrobe or nightgown, a Memory Bear may recall the closeness of a loved one, bring a smile to someone in distress, or offer a sense of security to a child who feels alone after the loss of a parent or sibling.

This is a great opportunity for you to give back to the community. By taking time out of your busy work week you can make the biggest difference in another’s life.

VITAS takes pride in its volunteers, and we welcome you to become part of our team. There are many locations throughout the Broward County area you can choose from. Your commitment is completely up to you, whether you spend one day a week or one day a month. Your time is always appreciated.

Call to post a flyer in your break room or area where all employees can view it. Make a difference. Volunteer today. For more information about VITAS visit VITAS.com or contact VSM at (954) 777-5396 or Email veronica.palomino@vitas.com . We look forward to hearing from you!
