About

Our Lady of Peace Home, Hospice and Home Care (OLP) is a free-care hospice providing care to children and adults. OLP is in need of crafty individuals and sewers to assist families of our hospice patients in making an Angel Bear at our hospice location in St. Paul, MN.

The Angel Bear is a teddy bear created from their loved one's clothing--a treasured keepsake for the family to hold on to. Volunteers are needed to help you cut, sew and stuff the angel teddy bear that will become a comforting and heartfelt memory.

Our Lady of Peace Bereavement Services hopes to host this opportunity several times per year and we are in need of volunteers with sewing expertise to make that possible. The first event is February 11, 2017. Please join us to observe the process or jump right in! Willingness to bring your own sewing machine is a plus!

Special thanks to Mattson Funeral Home and Cremation Services for their mentorship and willingness to share this beautiful idea.

Interested? Contact Our Lady of Peace Hospice's Bereavement Coordinator, Debbie Swanson, directly.
