Spend your VOLUNTEER time with needle and thread!
Share a little compassion and use your sewing skills to lift the spirit of a family member or friend who's recently suffered the loss of a loved one.
VITAS Innovative Hospice Care is seking volunteers to sew Memory Bears...a comforting companion during a time of sadness and loneliness.
A favorite flannel shirt, a fluffy robe, a pair of worn-out jeans or a pressed uniform-with our easy-to-follow pattern, our loved ones' favorite items can be transformed into a precious memory for caregivers and other family members.
Delivered with love, these bears promise a little joy and often bring a smile to the bereaved.
"Sewing VITAS Memory Bears has been a wonderfully rewarding and fulfilling experience for me. I do what I love while also contributing to the quality of life of others in my community." -Susan P., VITAS Volunteer
