5 people are interested
VITAS Healthcare 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 pants, 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 week you can make the biggest difference in another's life.
Must be able to sew from a Simplicity Pattern or a simple Carol's Zoo Bear pattern. Stuffing and pattern is provided by VITAS.
We'll work with your schedule.
