Share Your Sewing Skills, Help Bereaved Families Heal

Please visit the new page to apply.
Heritage Hospice is seeking creative and compassionate individuals to join our team of Memory Bear sewers!
Our sewing volunteers share their time and talents to transform the clothing of patients into keepsakes -- teddy bears and pillows -- for our grieving families. Bears and pillows are sewn from gently worn items of the patient’s clothing, such as a flannel shirt or favorite dress. These special keepsakes are a beautiful reminder of cherished memories after the loss of a loved one, and can provide comfort and a sense of security to the recipient.
Volunteers must own and have experience with a sewing machine and be able to follow a pattern. Stuffing and patterns are provided by Heritage Hospice, and compassionate creativity is provided by you!
All volunteers are integral and well-loved members of our team, and are provided with training and ongoing support.
Reach out to our Volunteer Coordinator, Julianna, at (724) 334-6600 to discuss the possibilities and create an opportunity unique to your strengths!
