Mend a Heart – Sew a Memory Bear

 

While nothing can ever take the place of a loved one, a memory bear can bring comfort to the grieving families touched by hospice. Memory bears are crafted from articles of clothing of hospice patients who have passed and are sometimes adorned with sentimental momentos and accessories. They become a treasured keepsake for families.

Volunteers do not have to live near a Journey Hospice location. We will ship clothing and accessories provided by the family to you and cover shipping expenses to return the completed memory bears.

 

Journey Hospice, a program of Lutheran Social Ministries of New Jersey, is a non-profit provider of hospice and palliative care services in New Jersey. If you enjoy sewing and would like to help make a difference for those who have lost a loved one, please contact Beth Gebhart, Director of Community Relations & Volunteers at (609) 760-6073 or at bgebhart@lsmnj.org.
