TITLE: Make Clay Heart Keepsakes for Hospice Families
Touch someone else's heart... Support Samaritan's families by making mini clay heart keepsakes for our staff to share as part of a ritual with our families who just lost their loved one on Samaritan’s services.
Hearts are placed in the caregiver’s hand to honor and memorialize the patient, and a beautiful verse is read. Check out this video: https://youtu.be/uMxMMVrQwu0
Make as many as you like - once or ongoing. Service hours awarded.
Supplies are not provided by Samaritan. Please email Sharon Wenner, Supervisor of Volunteer Services, SWenner@SamaritanNJ.org or call 856-552-3238 for detailed instructions and sample images.
