Do you enjoy sewing? Do you want to help a grieving person? If so, please consider joining our CARE BEAR VOLUNTEER TEAM. We will provide volunteers with the materials and the pattern. We will support you along the way. You will meet the most amazing volunteers who share your desire to help others.

Memory Bears and Memory Pillows are made for grieving family members from cherished clothing of their loved one. For a grieving person to be able to hug the bear or pillow made from a clothing item worn by their loved on is deeply healing. Some bears might wear a special pin, earring or other item which was meaningful to the loved one who has passed. These bears are made to honor the memory of the loved one and provide a deep comfort to the grieving family members. We know how devastating the loss of a loved one is, these memory bears and pillows help in the grieving process. Capital Caring Health provides end of life care to all ages, from pediatrics to geriatrics. We are a non- profit who never turn anyone away based on ability to pay.

Patients and their families are located in Montgomery and Prince George's Counties in Maryland.
