Would you recommend VITAS Healthcare of East Bay?

by Nesta J. from Walnut Creek, CA (April 25, 2009)
The volunteer coordinator responded to my inquiry about the Memory Bear program promptly and was very friendly. She sent over some fabric and materials to practice on. I'm no speed-stitcher, but she's been very patient - I'm finally about to finish my sample bear and am looking forward to making a real one! Highly recommend this program, especially for someone who lacks the time, transportation or training for other programs.
