Wrapped in Hugs


Our Wrapped in Hugs program aims to provide a handmade wrap to every LifeSource donor family at the time of their loved one’s donation. Our hope is that these wraps will help donor families feel embraced by the warmth of this special gift as they begin their grief journeyWe hope you will consider contributing to this very worthy project. 

In an effort to accommodate every family we serve, we have set a goal to collect 600 wraps annually. Wraps are accepted on an ongoing basis so that we can continue to offer this gift to donor families.
