Giving Comfort and Peace Through Memory Bears

Service League members were on hand to provide sewing assistance during a Vidant Home Health and Hospice Memory Bear Workshop on May 13, 2017.

Memory bears are a way to bring comfort and peace to grieving families.

Using fabric from a favorite garment of a beloved one who has passed away, a memory bear is stitched together during the workshop and given to the participating families as a keepsake.

Several Memory Bear workshops were held this year.  Our thanks to all the Service League members who volunteered and supported this effort to give comfort to the grieving families.
