MEMORY BEAR SEWERS FOR HOSPICE

Save to Favorites

Capital Caring Health- Alexandria

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 3 people are interested

Memory Bears are made for grieving family members from clothing of their loved one. For a grieving person to be able to hug a bear made from the favorite shirt/pajamas of their loved one, is deeply healing. Some bears might wear a special pin or other important item. These bears represent the person and are made to honor their memory. We know how devastating the loss of a loved one is on a family. Capital Caring Health provides hospice care to pediatric patients as well as all ages. These bears are so important to the family.

Do you enjoy sewing? Do you want to help a grieving person heal? If so, please consider joining our team as a Caring Crew Bear Volunteer. We will provide the materials and the patterns for the bears. We will support you every step of the way. You will meet other volunteers who share their love for sewing and helping others.
