Stitch a Memory Bear. Create a Forever Friend.

Save to Favorites

VITAS Healthcare of Greater Dayton

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 1 person is interested

VITAS Healthcare is looking for people who love to sew.

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.

This is a great opportunity for you to give back to the community.
