VITAS Healthcare is looking for people who love to sew and who are able to make simple 18 inch
bears for families who have recently lost a loved one. Interaction with families is not required! We provide
a pattern and stuffing fiber. You provide the sewing skills. We will deliver the clothing and pick up the finished bears at your desired location. This is a perfect way to "give back" without leaving home.
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.
