Create a warm welcome for patients receiving end-of-life care and a lasting keepsake for their families. Join our Pillow Partners team to make gifts of comfort and color for our patients. Quilters, seamstresses, hand-stitchers and machine-users contribute their own designs making each pillow unique. We provide guidelines for the 18 x 18 pillow covers and the pillow form inserts. We also have a select group of Pillow Partners that create a wide variety of projects including: Activity Aprons, Bereavment Bears/Memory Pillows (made from a loved ones clothing items), Clothing Protectors, Weighted Blankets, Knitted Socks, Lap Blankets and Quilts (crocheted, knitted and sewn) etc.
We will send you an application and information packet. Guidelines for making the pillow covers are included. You provide the design and labor; we provide the pillow forms. Pillow Partners who track the hours spent volunteering are invited to all in-service and recognition events and receive our quarterly newsletter.
Update - we currently have a surplus supply of Pillow Covers. We are currently in need of small quilts and our other specialty hand-made projects.
We'll work with your schedule.
