VITAS’ Memory Bear Volunteers make home-sewn bears with compassion and love to ease a hurting heart after the death of a VITAS patient. The bears are sewn from items of the patient’s clothing: a favorite pair of jeans, pullover top, dress, bathrobe, nightgown, etc. 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 grandparent, parent or sibling.
The fabric is provided by the family; the pattern, support and stuffing are provided by VITAS and the creativity is provided by the Memory Bear Volunteer. Bears can be made in the volunteer’s home or sewing clubs.
Volunteers should have a desire to use their talents or hobbies to make a difference in someone’s life. Must have sewing tools: sewing machine, needles, etc. No professional experience is necessary, but creativity is a plus.
We'll work with your schedule.
