Memory Bears and pillows are sewn from the clothing of a loved one who has passed away. The bears or pillows are given to the family as a treasured and lasting keepsake. A pattern and stuffing can be provided, and volunteers sew the bears and pillows in their own homes as a remote volunteer opportunity. This service is an important part of our Bereavement care of hospice families in Collier County, Florida.
