Bridge Hospice - Modesto

  • 1 person is interested

At Bridge Hospice are as many special projects as there are unique volunteers. We always have a need for crafters to make lap robes, shawls, blankets, pillowcases, small pillows, afghans, or small decorative items for patients' rooms...all of which can be lovingly supplied from the hands of our wonderful craft volunteers.

Ideas of Items to Make for Patients:

  • Small wreath for door or bedside
  • Door hanger
  • Greeting cards
  • Booklets of pictures (animals, places of travel, or scenery)
  • Eye catching small items to hang in patients’ rooms
    Small flower arrangements
  • Crafty Holiday projects

Sewing or Kitting Projects:

  • Bone Pillows (neck pillow)
  • Walker bag
  • Lap quilt or blanket
  • Fidget blanket
  • Hospital gowns

Occasionally, a family will ask for something to be made from an item (i.e. a shirt) that once belonged to their loved one. We call the items "Memory Bears" or "Memory Pillows", etc.

We would love to hear your ideas as well! Items may be made at home and delivered to our office or a staff member will be happy to pick up.

Time Commitment is very flexible and based on your availability. We have patients located in Stanislaus and San Joaquin Counties.

Please email volunteer program @ aleale@bridgehc.com or call (209)290-0193 for more information!

Consider joining our team of compassionate volunteers making a difference in the lives of our patients and families!
