Tweed Bear

Talented sewing crafters are needed to create Memory Bears from the clothing of hospice patients to create keepsakes for their grieving family members. Pattern and design guidance will be provided along with helpful tips & tricks from current volunteers who have been creating these memory bears. Volunteer is able to set completion time as they accept each assignment, affording exceptional flexibility for each creative process.
Concerned about the cost of supplies? No worries! We can provide all materials you need.
Are you a snowbird? You can take the assignment home with you and ship it back to us once completed.
Even if it takes a month or two to complete, that's just fine... this is a creative opportunity that you can completely control so you'll have more than enough time to stuff that bear full of love and your amazing creative expression.

About Chapters Health System (Hospice)

Mission Statement

Cornerstone Hospice's mission is simple: Delivering extraordinary care to every person we touch in every community we serve. Volunteer opportunites are available throughout the seven Central Florida counties we serve: Hardee, Highlands, Lake, Orange, Osceola, Polk and Sumter, and now in Cobb County, Georgia. If you live in a neighboring county, you can still volunteer. However, all of your volunteer activities will take place in one of our seven counties, typically the one closest to you. PLEASE NOTE: Even if you are interested in several different volunteer roles within our organization, you only need to click on one opportunity during this process. You will have a chance to discuss ALL of your areas of interest during your volunteer training. Thanks!


Cornerstone Hospice volunteers are a vital part of our entire organization, and play an active role in helping to provide the many special comfort and support services that distinguish Cornerstone Hospice care.

Our volunteers are special, but not out of the ordinary. They are regular people just like you. They use common sense and understanding. They do not need a medical background. They listen. They care. Volunteers help make a patient's life more fulfilling and satisfying by giving their time, understanding, and support and asking nothing in return. They also provide support to caregivers who are often with the patient 24/7 and may need a much needed break. If direct care is not for you, you can assist with administrative tasks at our office locations, and help out with events and community outreach. Any Cornerstone Hospice volunteer will tell you that they feel they receive more from their experience than they give.

PLEASE NOTE: All volunteers are required to go through a training class with additional training required for some positions. For this reason, becoming a Cornerstone Hospice volunteer is typically not appropriate for court related community service hours or other short-term requests. Ideally, our volunteers commit to at least one year with us.
