Pumpkin spice lattes. Steaming hot cocoa. Storefronts dressed in holiday style. ‘Tis the holiday season, a season filled with gaiety and Hallmark moments—unless you’re missing someone you love.
Many grievers say there is no harder time than the holidays, leaving funeral professionals with a prime opportunity for community outreach through HUGS—Holiday Understanding Grief Support.
What is HUGS?
An interactive program that provides comfort and support to your families during one of the hardest times of the year, HUGS is a workshop, sharing circle, and candlelight ceremony all rolled into one special event. Hosted by you, facilitated by us. It’s community outreach made easy.
We provide staff, workshop handouts, candles, music, marketing material, press release, and more—everything you need for a successful outreach event.
• Workshop to help families cope with the holidays
• Sharing circle
• Candlelight ceremony
• A positive community impression
• Builds relationships
• Creates referrals
Your organization receives the recognition while your families get the support they need.
HUGS was created over 10 years ago by aftercare specialist Linda Findlay in response to organizations who wanted to do something for grieving families but didn’t have the staff or tools. Today, HUGS has partnered with hundreds of organizations to provide a private label program that’s helped thousands of families during a difficult time of year.
With the holidays just around the corner, dates are filling up fast. Call soon to get your community outreach HUGS program on the calendar—and make a lasting impression for the families you serve.
