The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Seasons hospice is looking for artistic volunteers to join our memory bear/ pillow sewing program. Craft volunteers make meaningful items such as prayer shawls, lap blankets, pillows and teddy bears all sewn from patient's clothing: a favorite pair of jeans, t-shirt, dress, nightgown, etc. The items are given to bereaved families to help recall the closeness of a loved one, bring a smile in a time of distress, or offer a sense of security after the loss of a grandparent, parent, spouse or sibling.
New craft ideas are always welcome and creativity is a plus. If you are interested in learning more about this volunteer opportunity please contact us. We look forward to hearing from you!! We will provide all the materials for the pillows/bears/ect. to be made.
